I’ve had a thirst for some straight up, good ol’ rock and roll for some time now – Danny Echo, a Vancouver-based band, really hit the spot with their explosive brand of classic rock and pop. Their first, self-titled full-length release is pure dynamite.
Danny Echo writes and performs each song on this record as if it were going to be the radio-friendly single. The skeleton for each of these 10 songs is a structure of solid melody, but fleshing it out is plenty of guitar muscle and vocal grit. So Danny Echo comes rushing out of the gate as more of a melodic rock band to me, with some sprinkling of powerpop here and there.
