Tiny Engines (Dikembe, Restorations, Tigers Jaw) is excited to welcome Boston, MA’s Somos to the label’s growing family. The band went into the studio with with Jesse Cannon and Mike Oettinger (The Menzingers, Transit, Man Overboard) at Cannon Found Soundation Recording Studios in Union City, NJ in May and will head back once again in August to finish up their debut LP, due in early 2014 on the Carolina-based label. You can download the band’s 2012 Demo for free on Bandcamp.

Somos (meaning ‘We Are’ in Spanish) originally came together in early 2012 on the West Coast. The band recorded their 4 song demo at Panda Studios in San Francisco shortly after. Those songs, released in July of 2012, offered a glimpse of a young band with abundant promise. In the Summer of 2012 the band’s line-up shifted as two members moved back to their home state of Massachusetts and relocated to Boston. With a core group now intact, Somos spent close to a year honing their sound and writing in preparation for their official debut. Residing somewhere between the anthem-laced punk rock of Polar Bear Club and the emo/alt rock melody of Piebald, Somos touches on something uniquely uplifting in tone. As good as the band’s original demo was, the potential was for something much more to come and the new songs quickly deliver. Displaying an incredible maturity for such a young outfit, Somos has tightened and streamlined their songwriting. The band showcases an immediate chemistry, sucker punching you with dynamic songs that weave and unravel in short melodic bursts of energy. Embracing the community for which they were born, Somos are ready for what the future holds.

Somos was recently confirmed for FEST 12 in Gainesville, FL. The band is also playing a show this week (AUG 01) with Maura, The Weeds, Foreign Tongues and The Elephants at the Church of Boston. Facebook events page here.
