She Wants Revenge, the duo of musical chameleon Justin Warfield and producer Adam Bravin, has reunited for a tour marking the 10th anniversary of their self-titled debut. She Wants Revenge the album became a Hot Topic and goth club staple upon its release, based around tunes like "Out of Control" and "Tear You Apart." Full disclosure: I saw them at the House of Blues nearly a decade ago, and in spite of myself I was charmed by their music, which at that point was an unself-consciously dour mix of Suicide, Soft Cell and New Order. Songs glide along on a minimalist sinewave pulse – recalling all the good songs on Closer – and Warfield's tortured baritone, reciting snatches of what had to be a teenage diary. Postpunk for the masses. A net positive.
