John Mellencamp once sang, “It hurts so good/C’mon baby make it hurt so good.” Jessica Hernandez must have been taking notes because listening to her band is like having Hernandez kick you in the groin one second and then shove her tongue down your throat right afterward. With a killer voice reminiscent of the fire of Joan Jett, the soul of ZZ Ward, and the sexiness of Grace Potter, Hernandez delivers the goods on her latest EP, Demons. Just try to ignore the hip-shaking rock of “Caught Up” or deny the seductive rock ‘n’ roll swagger of the title track; resistance is futile. And even when she tones things down on the soulful “Shadow Boy” — Hernandez’s most show-stopping performance, by the way — or goes a bit brass band on us with a cover of “The Death of You and Me” by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Hernandez does it with a defiant sort of passion and devil-may-care attitude that is quintessential rock singer territory. Hernandez is an absolute siren, and her music is as hot as it gets. Get ready to feel the burn — you’re going to love it. —Brian Palmer SUNDAY
