Daniel Donjuan (Guitar / Vocals), Eduardo Silva (Guitar / Vocals), Anthony Delgado (Guitar), Juan Prado (Bass) and Danny Martinez (Drums) combine to form Cosmic Rays an indie-funk band from Santa Ana in The USA.
Brand new out of the traps Cosmic Rays have made a string of tracks available to hear over the past couple of months and are looking to catch up with live-performances to establish a local following.
Instilled in local garage surf, there is also a jazz funk feel to the sound along with some snatches that remind me of ’80s new wave, so all in all an range of interesting influences, which the quintet are able to turn around with a refreshing blast of sound.
Guitars work well together without trying to complicate the sound that breezes through the room, whilst the percussion marks out a sharp line of direction and a smartly presented vocal rounds out the sound. The tautly strung guitars give the music a nervous energy which Cosmic Rays are able to transliterate to a zesty lemon burst of sound.
A little too smartly pressed for my natural stomping ground, but nonetheless a fine entry to the world of music and an out-fit I would like to hear more of as they develop. I wish Cosmic Rays all the best for the future.
