I am a huge fan of Daphne, having already reviewed their self-titled debut on The Rock and Roll Report as well as playing various cuts from their CD on Rock and Roll Report Radio. Named after the character from the Scooby Doo series, this four-piece from New York had me hooked from my first listen to Sin (which is available as a free download from their site). I cannot find fault with one cut on this CD and just having a listen to Astoria, She’s Still Running (another personal fave) and Sweet, it shouldn’t take much to convince you that these boys mean business.
This is one of those CDs that has not only provided much rock and roll fodder for the radio show but has been a constant on my iPod and stereo at home and I can think of no higher praise than that. If you get the chance to catch them live take it. I am trying to haul these guys North of the border for some rock and roll fun, hopefully they will make it past the border guards soon.
Head over to their MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/daphne and enjoy the sounds. Crank it up and dive in, the rock and roll water feels good. Great band.
