Unspoiled by gimmickry, shtick or pretense, STRIKES AGAIN! Draw upon cornerstone elements of rock and distill them into an explosive package of indie-rock anthems, delivered with childlike abandon by the tightest four-piece in the five boroughs. The band's unbridled sincerity and enthusiasm comes through in their recordings and pounds their audiences senseless at live performances. Onlookers are hypnotized by the effortless charisma of singer-songwriter-guitarist-wrecking ball, John van Atta, who roars and spins perilously across the stage, churning out songs from the most uncaged part of himself. Sharp vocal melodies and quixotic, evasive lyrics tell lost fables of sickbed wishes and death-cheating heroics. Hair-raising guitar lines, no-frills distortion and a muscular, propulsive rhythm section keep up a wild frenzy of sound that can turn and stop at a dime, just when you think you know where it's going. It is on the brink of catastrophe that STRIKES AGAIN! Catapult their songs into the stratosphere without regard for gravity.
