It's Raining Men

In theory, it's an odd collaboration: Chris DeGarmo, who made his name as the guitarist with Queensryche, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez from Alice In Chains, and singer Vin Dombroski from Detroit alt.rockers Sponge. However, if this alliance seems unlikely in theory, in practice it's pretty seamless and thoroughly entertaining.
Don't expect a sound that's a hybrid of their alma matas; Spys4Darwin have their own ideas. A familiar blend that encompasses contemporary American rock (think Matchbox Twenty, Train etc) that then takes a left-field twist to pick up traces of bands like Faith No More and Pearl Jam. Infused with sensible melodies and clear-cut arrangements, it's classic rock for a modern audience.
The best track of the six on this minialbum is undoubtedly 'Dashboard Jesus (Follow)', a masterpiece with dense atmospherics, a spiky attitude and a nice sense of the epic, although the rest of the material hardly slouches in comparison.
Which all goes to suggest that 'Spys4Darwin' isn't just a collection of stars idling away their time, but a bona fide band with a future.
