Hailing from Spartanburg, South Carolina, Dezeray's Hammer has been making music for about ten years. When it came time to hit the studio this time around they made the choice to expand their somewhat standard alternative rock sound with some new influences.
The result is a highly enjoyable yet hard to pin down pastiche of styles. I hear elements that bring Maroon 5, Black Crowes, Sister Hazel, and even Erasure (yep, Erasure) to mind ... The really surprising thing is that the band seems to synthesize these styles into something that flows really nicely.
If you are after an eclectic mix of pop, rock, funk, and soul then Dezeray's Hammer's latest release The Past That Decorates Me is very likely to fit the bill.
Standout tracks: Something About The Way, Is It Over, King's Highway
