((Shock Cinema)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Brooklyn's Shock Cinema is a female-fronted punk band that features members of The Rogers Sisters, ...Trail of Dead and Dragons of Zynth. When you listen to these guys, you'll immediately hear the influence of many popular punkish bands running about out there, including Yeah Yeah Yeahs (the crunch riffs), Pretty Girls Make Graves (the melodic overtures around those crunchy riffs), and Celebration (the vocals). Shock Cinema's sound seems to be a mash-up of these three heavy-hitters.

When we saw them play recently, it certainly was an energetic affair. Singer Destiny Montague flailed and crooned like a soon-to-be rock star, and her band's impressive credentials were evident as they rocked out with orchestrated precision. Shock Cinema's debut is due out soon on Kanine Records (the onetime home of Oxford Collapse and Grizzly Bear, among others).
