Lemuria is guitarist/vocalist Sheena Ozzella, bassist Jason Draper, and drummer/vocalist Alex Kerns. The band formed in 2004 and, in true DIY fashion, self-released several EPs and 7”s over the past few years. In 2006, they released a split LP with Kind of Like Spitting, which was released on Art of the Underground, a record label/distro run by drummer Alex. They’ve also done a 5-week tour of Europe and generally tour around the States 4-5 months out of the year. This April they are doing a mini tour of Puerto Rico. Seriously…the band has been keeping busy.
Get Better consists of tight melodic punk songs, led by vocals provided from each member, though mostly from Sheena. Their sound has been compared to Superchunk, Discount, and Jawbreaker, while their list of influences includes the Lemonheads and Husker Du. Bust magazine reports that Get Better is "oh so satisfying" while Skyscraper predicts that "these D.I.Y. darlings will be on the tip of a lot of people's tongues in the coming year."
The Buffalo-based indie pop/punk trio Lemuria is releasing their first full length LP, Get Better, on Asian Man Records. Recommended!
