From the second that hard-strummed Drop D acoustic guitar comes in on Slam Donahue's single, "C'mon C'mon," you know you've got your hands on something good. The don't-know-what-you-got-til-it's-gone track only gets better from there, with MGMT-like vocals, a smart beat, and witty piano licks. Short and sweet, "C'mon C'mon" is classic Slam, blending pop and hip-hop sensibilities. After a few years of relative obscurity, this NY-based band sounds ready to be a mainstay in our headphones.
Check out this catchy song below. Hemlock Tea is out now via Cantora Records.
