24-year-old Kara Martin’s new EP ‘Vertigo’ features five kick-ass tracks bursting with a modern/vintage attitude & swagger far beyond her young years.
As the title suggests, Vertigo pushes you over-the-edge with a dizzying array of ’70s-inspired contemporary power pop/rock. Vertigo’s tight, high-energy songs showcase Kara’s sexy vocal style, which fits perfectly with the stripped-down instrumentation, hooky melodies and provocative lyrics.
Kara Martin’s Vertigo will keep you spinning and swaying from the first bass note of Be My Man, to the final powerchord of What I Want.
Kara Martin embodies the punk-rock DIY ethic in every way—from her edgy self-produced debut, to her highly-motivated distribution methods; i.e., vending her music herself through informal and very difficult (read: rejection-laden) channels like guerrilla marketing and hand-to-hand direct selling on Hollywood Boulevard, Third Street Promenade, and the Santa Monica Pier here in Southern California…that is, until we heard her demo!
