It’s been over a year and a half since the indie New York music scene favorite foursome known as, Moe Green’s Eye (a Godfather reference for you youngsters), echoed across our radar. Back in the summer of 2017 we called their live debut EP, Fast Radio Bursts, “…light-hearted, refreshing, and well produced. Creating a sound that is rich and full, in real time…”
Now, the decades-long friendships between members Steve Siegel (guitar, songwriting), Anthony Galati (lead vocals), Jeff Mackey (bass), and Bob Gallagher (drums) has resulted in their strong sophomore effort, the fully-studio produced, After The Baptism (another Godfather reference, kids), for which the lead-off single, Who’ll Take Me Home, has caught our attention.
With good old-fashioned drums, electric axes, and lyrics of nostalgic reflection, it’s quickly evident that Siegel and company have their intentions set on creating a more fundamentally rock’n’roll sound, specifically reminiscent of the late 80’s & early 90’s.
In fact, after just a few opening chords of Who’ll Take Me Home’s melody, I was thinking of Black Crows and Skid Row. No, I’m not kidding. For all you old hair-banders out there, give it a listen, you’ll hear it too.
A tale of the sadness that ensues upon realizing life has blown past and little has changed, the fellas create a likable relatability which turns a dark theme into a connecting comfort. It’s good stuff.
A refined & mature iteration of early-era Black Crows meets Skid Row.
