Scars on 45
In the words of AllMusic.com, "British alt-rock ensemble Scars on 45 make yearning, melodic pop that combines the big guitar rock of Oasis with the melodic, country-influenced sound of Fleetwood Mac." The band formed in 2007 as two fellow soccer team members, singer/songwriter Danny Bemrose and bassist Stuart Nichols, began writing songs together. They added keyboardist David Nowakowski, vocalist Aimee Driver, and drummer Chris Durling, and they began to attract attention stateside when their song "Beauty's Running Wild" appeared in an episode of "CSI: New York" in 2009. Signed to the Chop Shop subsidiary of Atlantic Records, Scars on 45 released a pair of EPs and then a full-length eponymous debut, featuring a single, "Heart on Fire," that appeared on the "Grey's Anatomy, Vol. 4" soundtrack" Scars on 45 opened for Vance Gilbert at The Ark in March, and we're excited about their Ark debut, which brings music from their forthcoming sophomore album.
