In some ways, the Deelinquents are just an excuse for D'Angora to dance to her own kind of music — albeit with her sister Beka Dangora singing harmony on her right and her friend Samantha Goddess (wife of Tony) singing harmony on her left. As opposed to what she refers to as her "scream-singing" with her louder, rawer-energy former bands, Keeping Time is a more subtle backdrop for D'Angora's belting, Martha Reeves–esque voice. Devoted fans might miss her clanging guitars, but no one should think for a minute that girl-group routines don't take just as much conviction. D'Angora laughs that now not only does she have to sing the notes without the crutches of feedback and distortion, she has to do so while dancing. "You are looking at the choreographer — which is kind of hilarious. But if you've got a love for this kind of stuff, then it is kind of in your head."
