"Suburban Myth- Plastic Souls"

During my younger years, whenever an act played a gig in my hometown I was there. On one Saturday night I went to see Seether (known as Saron Gas at the time). I enjoyed the show on the night (the black eye I got in the ‘pit’ was pretty cool too) but I knew I was no Seether fan. It was a night out of my parent’s house.

Suburban Myth’s brand of rock (billed as alternative rock) is exactly what sells. With sing-a-long melodies, conventional structures and a radio friendly quality (apart from one implicit “fuck”), there’s little to stop this band becoming a household name in time to come.

One hurdle that does stand in their way of possible success is the reality that the main band members reside on far-flung continents, but they’re working hard to overcome this logistical inconvenience.

Heavily influenced by those who have profited from the Goo Goo Dolls, Seether and Matchbox 20 sound (namely Goo Goo Dolls, Seether and Matchbox 20), their music is marketable, and with physical prints and international distribution, the band are making small, concerted steps in the right direction.

Derek Daisey of Suburban Myth

Vocalist Derek Daisey makes no bones about his affinity for writing pop, and that’s exactly what they need to voice if they want to reach Transatlantic success.

“It doesn’t matter how ‘rock’ I get… melody and being catchy is the first thing the song has to be to me or it’s not worth my time” – Derek Daisey in an interview with Patrick Walters

Personally, however, the EP is a story with very little conflict. Pop will hopefully prove to be their bread and butter, but if rock music is a spectator sport then Suburban Myth’s Plastic Souls is a goalless draw; a day out of the house, but nothing to write home about.

Plastic Souls is available on iTunes, Amazon and ReverbNation, or directly from the Suburban Myth official website. - The Doughnut


"Single Review"

With a splash of Matchbox 20, and a hint of Biffy Clyro, Suburban Myth are simply lush. Their second single ‘Cool Cat In The Glass’ is set for release on the 15th of July, already gaining airplay from BBC Introducing.

They are the kind of band you’ll be lucky enough to see up close and personal in a small venue, as a growing name… Until they hit the mega bucks, and they’ll be headlining festivals before you know it.

Watch this space, yeah? - New Reviews

Bio

Suburban Myth is an alternative rock band that takes its music influences from bands such as The Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20 and Shinedown with lyrical influences ranging from the likes of Mike Peters to Paul Rodgers. All of which bring together a melodic rock sound that surrounds and encompasses storytelling that gets the foot tapping and the mind reflecting.

Musical composer and vocalist Derek Daisey resides in Charleston, SC while lyricist Phil Wormall, in contrast, bases himself in Nottingham, England. Two sides of an ocean, but yet the two have converged in an epic merger to create this energetic alternative rock band. Consisting of Guitarist/Singer Derek Daisey, bassist/bg vocalist Nicholas OKelley and drummer Nick Lomma, the band commands not only a strong presence, but a captivated audience with their electrifying performances and energy that carries the viewers through an experience all on its own.
