Browsing Collection Releases “Don’t Want to Dance”

Hailing from Sweden, Browsing Collection is comprised of 4 women who are not afraid to show the world who is boss. Musically, they’re a blend of punk, rock, and pop. Like, if Paramore actually had balls, this would be it. To add in a comparison, they remind me a lot of Los Angeles’ Glam Skanks.

Throughout their debut album, Don’t Want to Dance, vocalist and rhythm guitarist Mimi Brander shows she is a force to be reckoned with. She plays cute and badass at the same time with no issues at all.

When “One Time A Year” begins, I had no idea what to expect. The song begins with a small string intro and then immediately grabs you by the balls with heavy guitar and thunderous drums.

I definitely want to take a moment to acknowledge lead guitarist Moa Lenngren’s skill. This girl makes me want to cut my fingers off and sell my own gear because she is just amazing. Her solos on “Hi But No” and “Something To Hold On To” could give some of the rock guitar gods a run for their money.

The groove that is throughout “Thank God It’s Friday” is held down beautifully by bassist Nora Lenngren and drummer Carro Karlsson, and it’s become one of my go to favorites to get pumped up before I go out for the night.

Overall, Don’t Want to Dance is well worth picking up. I hope that at some point these rad girls can hop on a plane and come do a tour in the states, because I know they would be well received!

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
