Biography

Domi
Their message to you is simple:
Stay Tuned; Stay sweet; Use the word Dingus.

Based out of a recently christened Jersey City rehearsal space, Domi is a new project bent on reinvigorating rock for the iPod generation from beneath the shadows of lower Manhattan.

Although vocalist Vinny Caruso and guitarist Pete Strzelecki crossed paths via an internet posting, the 21st century’s best analogue to the poorly Xeroxed, phone numbered tear-aways of the 90’s middle-American music store, their resultant music is more informed by the qualitative D.I.Y. ethos of that era than the quick-serve, post-alternative strategies it inspired and whose impact lingers industry-wide today.

Backed by the established rhythm section of drummer Steve Zegray and bassist Pat Brennan, Domi have charged themselves with the formidable task of swinging rock’s balance of power back to that of music as art above commodity and form over function. Songwriting, arranging and recording, a true group effort performed completely in-house and coupled with all of the lessons learned through years of work in previous groups, has enabled a solid foundation for Domi to take shape within the scope of little more than a dozen shows in a year’s time.

Still defining their sound, each member calls upon both personal and shared influences cut from a wide swathe of the musical spectrum, clearly drawing heavily on the alternative sound spiked with classic rock that defined the adolescence of their generation. In doing so Domi’s sound matures in its eclecticism and grows in its accessibility with each rehearsal in a style reflecting not just their own, but every generation’s reluctant ownership of a newly minted adulthood.

Former kids in America, this is (rock) music you’d actually want to listen to; a novel idea whose arrival and implementation is horribly overdue.

Lyrics

P.R.O.S.T.Y

Written By: Domi

Stay if only while youre naked
Naked on the floor
Did it ever make you wonder
That you couldnt ever stay

You were miles away
Go away

No I can't, no I will know
The only way to say, all that you have to hear
She hates it, shes lonely
and again she'll come
and again she'll come home

pray, its your only chance to
tell you what went wrong
don't blame it on the others
your self respect has shown

but you were miles away
go away

No I can't, no I will know
The only way to say, all that you have to hear
She hates it, shes lonely
and again she'll come
and again she'll come and go home

miles away
go away

No I can't, no I will know
The only way to say, all that you have to hear
She hates it, shes lonely
and again she'll come
and again she'll come
and again she'll come
and again she'll come and go home

The Merrit

Written By: Domi

Hold it, don't just only watch it
You believed in what you thought you could see
As time turns and everything else goes
The glue that held your hands and feet to the
earth, got worst

And so it goes too far, as far as I would let it go, again

You're the only one that takes a fight
The only reason to let my soul shine through this light
For everyone to see

And tomorrow you'll wake up, another day

The hardest call that I made
Was the one for me, not the one I made to you,
hello

And only by my side, was my heart beating upside down
In New Jersey.

You're the only one that takes a fight
The only reason to let my soul shine through this light
For everyone to see
And tomorrow you'll wake up, another day

You give and you take what is broken, it's so hard and you're making it feel so.

You're the only one that takes a fight
The only reason to let my soul shine through this light
For everyone to see
And tomorrow you'll make your peace
It's a feeling I can't take
And tomorrow you'll wake up, another day.

Blind Date

Written By: Domi

Don't spare your time
You won't be saved and neither will time, be on, your side
Your use is free

To get what you want and more than you need, it's the fuel to delight

And are you horny, empty, or alone?

You want to scream that sound
You want to call and let it out
But it hurts you more than you could ever hold
This stage is all you have
You'll smile and lie behind your mask
But it pains you less and makes me want it more

Feel safe when tied
Failsafe in every way that you cry, all your lies, all your lies
Lost all your breath tonight
And knowing right before it ends that you�ll stir again

And everyone makes you feel like a victim

You want to scream that sound
You want to call and let it out
But it hurts you more than you could ever hold
This stage is all you have
You'll smile and lie behind your mask
But it pains you less and makes me want it more

You are
You are the one to blame

Everything I say and everything I've made
I'll make this up to you.
And all the things replied and all the things denied
I'll make this up to you.

All the blame you point and when it's all your fault
I'll never make this up to
Never make this up to you.

You want to scream that sound
You want to call and let it out
But it hurts you more than you could ever hold
This stage is all you have
You'll smile and lie behind your mask
But it pains you less and makes me want it more

Fountains

Written By: Domi

Old man can i hear you say
Can you show me what to feel
Show me how it is to engage
The things that life will bring

Everyday he plans for new
Truth be told nothings changed
Scars have changed to not bee seen
New wounds cover up all his life's stories

He said no, I can't go

Stay with me as long as you can
And if you have to leave
Take me too

Find lining in all his years
The youth that told all his love
But the reap approaches slow and slight
Tempted tears are all that he can fight

I can't go

Stay with me as long as you can
And if you have to leave
Take me too

Cos death it could scare me all the way there
So just hold me close so I can stay.

Stay with me as long as you can
And if you have to leave
Take me too

Anvil

Written By: Domi

you're safe from a piercing light, shadows of black are all that you can feel.

and all I wanted to change what i've become.

you can sail the world you know, and in time you'll find, all I wanted in you

and be still when you feel it near, the thought you've had has come to make your deal.

and is it a stranger or is it someone to love.

you can sail the world you know, and in time you'll find, all I wanted in you.
destiny, in the hopes that this hold, on your days, it can wake, wake you from weight.

when all thats breaking down, in every part of it, and all of this can take what you have.
when all the time that spent, and all that scrapes in hell, deadened to the world is escape.

destiny, in the hopes that this hold, on your days, it can wake, wake you from weight.

you can sail the world you know, and in time you'll find, all I wanted in you.
destiny, in the hopes that this hold, on your days, it can wake, wake you from weight.
