Bloodthirsty Virgins: beautifully tragic rock songs, filtered through a cinematic lens. The band is the brainchild of Nikki Wonder, a torch and jazz vocalist who developed her emotive style through years of theater training and fronting Columbus punk rock band Jack Neat. Her songwriting is based on soundscapes and hooks of old movies and literature; the stuff that fed her childhood fantasies of love and revenge.

Their debut record is lushly arranged: lavish vocals and fuzz pedal leads are anchored by a bombastic rhythm section. Recorded in a cavernous organ factory, the sound is clear and spacious.
