With a population of just over 50,000 people, Welland, ON is not traditionally known as a hotbed of break-out musical scenes but four gifted individuals under the moniker Attack in Black broke out of the mold and quickly gained recognition as an innovative and legitimate voice in contemporary music with their highly-acclaimed debut LP Marriage.
Featuring Daniel Romano (vocals, guitar), Ian Kehoe (bass), Spencer Burton (vocals, guitar) and Ian Romano (drums), Attack in Black’s strength lay in their innate ability to craft infectious melodies, and create unique thought-provoking mantras while tastefully blending a seductive mix of sixties pop, low-fi psychedelia, roots and punk music. Finding inspiration from each other and with a fierce dedication to standing out and creating music that is meaningful, their sound ranged from guitar-driven influences from the likes of Pete Townsend to Neil Young, to Youth of Today as well as influences from literary icons such as Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, and Allen Ginsberg. The result is a culmination of an artistically-driven effort and timeless, insightful inspiration.
