“Here comes that line again/Where you and I began … severed,” Sarah Green intones solemnly over restrained guitar plucking on “Ever,” from Spare Parts for Broken Hearts’ Singles EP. “It took some time to mend/For all that shit to end.” The drums and bass come in, and the guitar mutates into an angry, fuzzy, grungy beast as Green’s vocals change from calm to furious. Many of the Long Beach trio’s other songs also alternate between contemplative melodicism and stormy hard rock as Green tries to find a romantic connection in the void. “Ships burning/Sail seas somehow/And I’ll call to you/And you’ll come for me,” she declares almost pleadingly on “Pleasure Delay.” Green can be pretty intense (“If you’re gonna die, would you do it for me?”), but her vocal dramatics match the band’s power.
