San Francisco pop-rock outfit Dangermaker is about to finish what they started. Last September, the band released the first half of their EP Light The Dark. In September they brought you part two, and the sequel in this case is as good as the original.
Opener “Disappear” channels The Cult‘s early glam days, “In Vain” showcases hooky ’80s synths and a huge vocal melody, and “Never Go Back” rounds it all out with a Killers-like crescendo, featuring a driving beat and chanting chorus that falls somewhere between heartsick yearning and undaunted resilience. Though dark at times, Dangermaker has found a way to make the gloom catchy, even endearing.
