TWO CENT SAM - Songs From The Sandbox
(S/R - 2011)
A new band for once justifiable to be raved about on papers mags and promos worldwide, US fivesome Two Cent Sam are a rare breed let loose.
These lads explore all manner of pop rock music created. Shoving, alternative, , indie, ska, and even AOR all in one basket, nothing ends up falls out over the side wilted. ‘Warcry’, ‘This is Why’ , ’Wasting Away’, ’Killers Now’, ’Memo 32’ , ’Never Too Soon’ and ’My Generation’ are the seven resident favourites in a thirteen -long thrill ride that is amplified by some tastily gusty vocals similar in frequent bursts to the Dexies’ Kevin Rowland. Strongly competent on both electric and acoustic strings plus keyboards, TCS don’t take any prisoners nor leave anyone out on the rocks with their spectrum pandering swagger and come through it even taller.

The band TWO CENT SAM is coming out of Long Island, New York, USA and they present their official first full-length CD with ‘Songs from the sandbox’, an independently released album that was mastered by Fred Kevorkian (THE WHITE STRIPES, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND). The sound is pretty good and so are the 13 included tracks that musically go for the typical modern day rocksound, which of course has it’s roots in the Classic Rock of the 1970s. Especially uptempo rockers like “Be there”, “This is why” and “Wasting away” are very catchy little tunes that will definitely appeal to the young Rock audience of the present day, because one can easily draw comparisons to bands like THE KILLERS, ARCTIC MONKEYS, FOO FIGHTERS, THE VACCINES, THE SUBWAYS, etc. etc. Who knows this TWO CENT SAM might become the next big thing and a dream will come true for the band if they would be able to hit the European Summer Festival circuit in 2012, because that is nowadays the place where you can become huge. On this record they show they are able to bring a great catchy modern day rocksound, as good as the mentioned bands, so if they can also cut it live on stage in front of 10,000s of people then TWO CENT SAM might just as well be as huge as the mentioned bands in 1 year from now!

Two Cent Sam, formed in late 2008, is an alternative-rock band based out of Astoria/Long Island, NY. Their debut full-length album, Songs From The Sandbox (released on August 19th, 2011), has been reviewed favorably worldwide, which has opened the doors for the band to perform at many of New York City's most prestigious venues. Having been compared to both a variety of acts from NY's post punk revival and the days of the British invasion, as well as current alt-rock chart-toppers The Killers, Two Cent Sam is a unique mix of their influences, packaged together for music lovers of all kinds.

Having recently performed at the Bamboozle Festival, the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, and opened up for James McCartney (son of Paul), Two Cent Sam is ready to continue climbing the rank and take on the world.
