And The Kids
On February 22, 2019, And The Kids release When This Life Is Over, their highly anticipated third album for Signature Sounds. Praised by NPR for "striking vocals [that] rival the vibrato and boldness of Siouxsie Sioux...and music that's both fearless and entertaining," And The Kids return with a bold continuation of their chunky indie rock meets blissful new wave sound.
Ramonda Hammer is a Los Angeles grunge-pop quartet who's band name comes from a lady featured on the former television show Cheaters. That show, in and of itself, represents how front-woman and band founder Devin Davis views life - it’s a mix of sad and funny, some people learn and some people don’t, and we take what we can to do what we can. In her songwriting, Davis plays with quirky chord progressions, time signature and tempo changes, and dynamic, biting vocal melodies - akin to many of the alternative and grunge bands that made an impact in the 90s. The other three fourths of Ramonda Hammer - Andy Hengl, Justin Geter, and Danny Louangxay - turn Davis’ songs into fully flourished anthems! The band's debut album drops March 11, 2016. It's titled Whatever That Means, which is not only a playful nod to everyone who’s puzzled by the band’s name, but is a lyric from a track on the album.
