PUNK | Lemuria


Putting the Buffalo-based trio, Lemuria, into any one genre is a tough thing to do. Generally referred to as an indie punk band, the group goes back and forth with punk, rock, and pop sounds throughout its catalogue. Sometimes they go back and forth in one song, changing time signatures and switching from a poppy progression to a hard punk one with regularity. Front-woman Sheena Ozzella's soft singing style and crunchy, distorted lead guitar-playing seem like a contradiction, but it works wonders, forming one of the more unique sounds in the punk scene today.

Lemuria plays with Prince and Green Dreams on Thursday, December 18, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $12-$14.;
