After a well-received set at LouFest 2011, Dom has landed near the top of the KDHX charts with the lo-fi "Family of Love" EP.

The vibrant appearance of singer and songwriter Dom's shocking pink guitar reflects the band's unconventional sound: loud, distorted guitar and bass riffs driving synth-pop melodies with an overall sunny feel. The combination of reverb-heavy vocals with charmingly irreverent lyrics define Dom's dreamy rock sound.

In their first release since their successful debut "Sun Bronzed Greek Gods," Dom (the band shares the name of the singer) continues to provide a catchy take on the lo-fi, DIY sound, and not without a sense of humor. The album's opening track "Telephone" begins with the eerie, droning sounds of an organ, which quickly transforms into an uptempo beat comprised of telephone beeps, all leading up to the song's whimsical keypad solo. The comic energy builds throughout the EP, ending with "Some Boys," featuring guest vocalist Emma Hendry, who sings: "Some boys want to kiss my face, but those boys are just a waste of space."

Dom's unexpected combination of distortion-driven rhythms and carefree lyrics creates a simple yet undeniably pleasant EP, a fitting soundtrack for the last weeks of summer.

On the KDHX Charts: #5 on CMJ for August 30, 2011.

This album can be heard on: The Mixtape, Rocket 88 and the Pop Life.
