Retro Sounds For 2011....
Through word of mouth I was recently recommended the debut album from San Francisco indie duo Dominant Girls, and a mighty good recommend it has turned out to be. Every track on the album seem to have an ever present joie de vivre and Invitation is packed with an abundance of great tunes and spot on harmonies. Unashamedly retro, the bouncing grooves and Smiths-inspired jangle of songs such as ‘Take A Bow’ and ‘Hoop Of Love’ would nestle effortlessly on the legendary C86 tape. Main man Ryan William Lynch has also often cited Springsteen and Nile Rodgers as contrasting influences. It makes for an interesting and often infectious melting pot of sounds that adds up to one of the more intriguing releases of 2011.
