Underground sensation Damone is quickly becoming rock ‘n’ roll’s hottest ticket in town with the release of their debut From the Attic.
From the Attic sizzles and pops with teenage exuberance, while capturing the playful energy of the punk/New Wave movement of the late ’70s and early ’80s.
Think of it as the Ramones meet the Bangles.
“At the Mall,” “On My Mind” and “Up to You” are tinged with Elvis Costello and Blondie overtones and the guitar gun slinging of Van Halen.
“Driveway Blues” and “You and I” show off the more sensitive side of Damone without straying away from the band’s punk rock roots.
“Leave Me Alone” is about as close to a ballad as it can get with the band’s spirited backbone still intact.
From the Attic flows smoothly from track to track as slamming guitar riffs give way to thick choruses crying out with the pangs and pleasures of teenage life.
