Band of the Week: The Submarines

Background Ramblings:
The members of this band (John Dragonetti and Blake Hazard) dated for a while. Before recording their first album (Declare a New State), they broke up, so they recorded the album in shifts…never in the studio at the same time. After recording the album (filled with songs about their relationship and break-up), they realized they still loved each other. So they got back together and got married (awwwwwww!), then recorded their second album.

2006 Declare a New State!
2008 Honeysuckle Weeks

Sharon’s Rating:

Dusty’s Rating:

Consensus Thoughts:
Fantastic, summery pop music. The instrumentation is fun and inventive. We like their first album better. We love how their voices sound together, and there’s not too much of that on the second album. The second album is good, but it's just not as good as the first one.

“Peace and Hate”, “Hope”, “Darkest Things”, “Maybe”, “Xavia”

Our band for next week is: The Daysleepers.

2008 Drowned in a Sea of Sound
