I have so many great memories to songs by female artists like The Runaways, The Pretenders, Suzi Quatro and Blondie - so when a new band comes along that sounds a bit like my childhood idols, I become nostalgic and put on a big smile because itï¿½s a lot easier to listen to something that awakens good old memories from the past than something with a completely new sound. Demetrea is a 4 piece new wave/pop act from Queens, New York that will please fans of Blondie and The Pretenders - their self titled debut cd is produced with a sound that bring thoughts to the 80ï¿½s scene.
Not all songs gets my attention but there are a few really good songs like the opener "Beam me up Scotty" that is handmade for Debbie Harry and the catchy "Earth meets the sun" that couldï¿½ve been written by Chrissie Hynde. My personal fave is the upbeat "Girlfight" that flirts with The Runaways hit "Cherry bomb", the songs are written by singer Demetrea with some help from guitarist Danny Nez. A charming record!
