|The tears are about to begin And the ecstasy is kickin in We're gettin ready for the next phase Please take me to a different place I want to feel...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
Mar 1, 2011The track's sonic cousin, "Burn Bridges," still stands tall on sparkly synth loops and bumper-sticker lyrics ("Burn bridges/Make yourself an island"), but the rest of the EP soars mostly on lo-fi surf pop made by landlocked youth using Casios and Fruity Loops in bored bedrooms.
Mar 1, 2011What makes Sun Bronzed Greek Gods work is the band's innate understanding of the power of a killer hook, and their ability to turn them out effortlessly on each of the EP's seven tracks. Sincere, sharp, catchy, funny--maybe these songs are all you need to know about Dom after all.
Mar 1, 2011Dom's sound has enough edge to satisfy the critics and enough energy to satisfy everyone else, but for what it's worth, this is the kind of album you don't have to think about for even a moment; sit back, sing a long, play it in the background, it doesn't matter. Just enjoy.
Mar 1, 2011Dom certainly isn't the only band around turning to the most questionable parts of music's past, but just because they're not alone doesn't make it a less perplexing choice. It lends otherwise compelling pop songs an air of irony they don't need, and makes a well-composed and well-recorded EP sound too thin in spots.
