My Cruel Summer is a New Jersey band formed by Marc Del Giudice (Lead singer, Guitar) Brian Morelli (Drums) and Dave Ricco (Bass Guitar). I don’t know too much else about this “mysterious” band since they don’t have a website and from what I can tell only have a limited social presence. My first impressions are that the band has a solid sound. It’s a little rock, a little alt, a little Americana. They have recently released an EP called Lower Voices and I’m going to talk about the title track.
My Cruel Summer – Lower Voices
I think the band’s first EP Lower Voices is a great start to their discography. On the production side it’s quite good for an indie rock band. In my opinion it sounds a little muddy in some places, and I recommend the guys keep a closer ear on future song mixes. To me, it seems like some of the drums are a little loud or there may be some moderate frequencies clashing in some spots. Of course, I’m just being a bit picky here as the overall sound of the band is solid! If you’re into guitar driven gritty indie rock then I highly suggest you give My Cruel Summer a test drive!
