Lemuria, 3-piece punk/pop/rock group founded in Buffalo, NY, returned to Bushwick’s neighborhood hang ‘Alphaville’ this past Thursday night to play their first NYC show in over a year. The band led by female vocalist Sheena Ozzella on vocals/guitar, Max Gregor on bass guitar, and Alex Kerns on vocals/drums have been taking time away from touring life to work on their fourth studio album to (hopefully) be released later this year or early next, following their 2013 full-length, The Distance Is So Big.
Despite having shared the stage in quite some time, Ozzella, Gregor and Kerns passionately jammed on new and old songs alike, feeding off the energy from the Brooklyn crowd who were packed into the intimate venue that was casually draped with white string lights and a twirling disco ball which scattered fractions of light across the dark room at the sold out show. East coast indie bands Overlord and Wild Pink opened up the evening, delivering power-pop, punk-rock tunes that certainly fit the bill and set the mood for when Lemuria came on stage to close out the night. They fed the audience a full set, highlighting most of their LP/EPs, and even mixing in a few new songs; opening with “Utah” and closing with “Timber” and “Sliver of Change,” that they debuted for the very first time. Lemuria played two additional East Coast shows over the weekend in Montreal and Vermont, before scattering back to their perspective homes to finish their newest works – stay tuned and check back on their website in the coming months!
