E-City-“Beyond the Dawn"

E-City

Label: Wizard Records  Indie

 

The first thing that grabs you on the first cut “Pages” is the crispness of the drums, then the guitars kick in, and finally the strength of the vocals. Reminiscent of Jefferson Airplane, and sometimes Jim Morrison, with guitar licks that mirror The Allman Brothers, any rock fan would love to have this  CD for their collection.

 

The second cut starts off with “Lonesome Midnight Train”, a sassy show-off guitar solo that has memories of Hendrix in it, which is certainly not a bad thing. “Down in the Delta” once again shows off the talent of drummer Pat Saraceno, with interesting rhythms that augment a great rock song.

 

‘Keep The Traffic Movin’” has a swampy, guitar riff intro, and strong vocals, while “One More Blues” goes in a whole other direction, with that John Mayall feel. “Sea Of Despair” speaks for itself about the loss of love and feeling lost and trying to find your way back ‘home’. “Riding a Wave” takes you back to the rock feel this band does best, with great mixtures of drums and guitar. 

 

“Can’t Blame the Fool” has a more melodic feel than the other tunes, with a Santana-like rhythm  and great background vocals ‘answering’ the lyrics. “Blondie” is the most commercial tune on the CD, although there isn’t a tune on this CD under 4 minutes. The ten tune offering ends “Soundtrack”, a haunting instrumental that truly shows off the musicianship of this trio.

 

E-City is comprised of music veterans George Gardos (bass) Pat Saraceno (drums) and Matt Enright (vocals and guitar). 

 

Although we have made reference to many different artists here, the truth is E-City is uniquely their own sound.
