Oh No Not Stereo's self-titled EP encompasses everything
that has to do with rock 'n' roll from classic to modern hard
rock and from garage quality to a high production sound. The duo
of Skylar Nielson (vocals, guitar) and Myk Agee
(drums) from Hollywood, California are in the same elk as Aiden,
Moneen, Last Conservative, and People In Planes.
Their EP, produced by the band and Marc Jordan (A Static
Lullaby, Rock Kills Kid) has a rebellious edge that
is synonymous with rock 'n' roll artists. With song titles like
"Burn The City Down" and lyrics like "Love me or
hate me just never forget me," Oh No Not Stereo has everything
people expect in a young rock band - copious amounts of resilient
energy, boastful bounce, and lots of angst fueling the heavily
loaded guitar riffs.
The opener "Instrumental" gets the lead out with brawny
guitar cuts. The chord segments are repetitive, building up the
frazzling sonic blusters and tying in the bombastic drum beats.
There is a garage rock pounce in the polished series. Tracks like
"Where You Are" and "Burn The City Down" have
complex chord changes turning from melodic to loud rock riffs
along the interims. The hard rock styling on "One More Thing
I Love" is emblematic of Damone and the rhythmic punk
rock hurls of Amber Pacific are reflected in "Thirty-Two."
The synchronicity in the vaunting drum beats and guitar modulations
on "Every Link In The Chain" are burly and feisty and
enhanced by the pikes of screamo vocals.
Oh No Not Stereo steak a claim on rock 'n' roll with some burly
guitar thrusts reminiscent of Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page
and intricate chord riffs in the class of Damone. Oh No Not Stereo
are a high powered rock set that haven't yet found their own distinctive
sound, but have a lot of resilient energy, boastful bounce and
bustling guitar riffs.
