"The underlying theme is that Menza has sultry vocals like skin on velvet, and Magneeto can pen a pop tune with the best of them.
Chad Huffman

Now we could only classify Magneeto as DC (Dawson’s Creek) pop if the WB show was rougher around the edges, starred frumpy record store nerds with bad black dye jobs, and took place in the late-1980s, early-'90s. Magneeto's got pop, undeniably. It's in every juicy hook and lead singer-songwriter Carmen Menza's sweeter-than-sweet voice. Derivative of the Big '80s, with all its poppy synth lines, snazzy beats, and really strong hooks, sung by a girl-II-woman? On paper, yes. In practice, far from it. One of the greatest statements a guy like me can make about a band is that said band has a unique sound. Somehow, on Magneeto's self-titled e.p., the trio manages to make retro parts add up to a previously unheard-of signature whole. This is DC pop music for people whose IQ's aren't too shabby and whose taste in music stretches further back than last week's hit parade.

Bio

Magneeto is the sexy guitar driven pop rock band that was created by singer/songwriter Carmen Menza. Brian Hartig, Mark Menza and Drew Phelps add their signature as the rhythm section that becomes Magneeto. Armed with a fistful of original tunes they started weaving their musical energy in the hip college town of Denton, Texas. Carmen fronts the band with an unwavering confidence in her ability to deliver a hook and have you singing with her. They blur the lines between pop rock, indie rock and jazz leanings.
