Review: The Handcuffs – Model For A Revolution [2006]

Swinging with a swank and pouty garage rock swagger, the Illinois duo known as The Handcuffs bust out the vintage go-go beats on their 12-track offering Model For A Revolution. Specializing in delivering spy rock with a sultry female voice purring the way to your soul on tracks featuring a bottom-heavy groove like “Can’t Get the Girl” as well as the sugary “First Class Bossa Nova,” this act comes across like an unlikely cross between The Bangles, The Divinyls, The Cardigans, and Monster Magnet. Exploding with pink bubbles and resonating with the slick hooks heard on “All Shine On” and “I’m Not Laughing,” The Handcuffs keep your power-pop senses tingling with their edgy brand of mod rock. – Mike SOS Social Networking for Theatre Fans.
