Mp3 of the week: Deadly Sins

DOWNLOAD: Deadly Sins, "Unpaid Bills" (mp3)

Whatever sex appeal Dropkick Murphys can claim belongs to Stephanie Dougherty, the brassy, tattooed lass the band brought on to lend a woman's touch to their drunk-punk classic "The Dirty Glass." Now she's stepping out as the frontwoman of a spidery deathpunk band called the DEADLY SINS. (Merch booth: focused!) The song title tells you all you need to know about how much being a bit player in DKM actually pays; this demo was recorded in a year's worth of downtime, shuttling the redeye on JetBlue from Vegas to Boston, hoping Starbucks wouldn't fire her by the time she got back. Ex-Crash and Burn frontman Bill Brown adds a feral counterpoint to Steph's drop-dead belt, producing note-perfect thrash-pop that'll make fans of Crimpshrine and early Jawbreaker melt. Grab the track, then catch Deadly Sins during their hometown debut with the Murphys on St. Paddy's Day at B.U.'s Agganis Arena.
