Here's a great little independent release from New York band Station. I first caught wind of these guys on Facebook. I think Kelv Hellrazer pointed this quartet out to me. Reading a little about them, it seems they've been in the business for a few years, their sound is very very 80's hard rock. You'll hear a myriad of influences. For me, Trixter, White Lion, Tyketto, plus Firehouse. All good references, and it's not hard to tell when you switch on their groovy four-track EP 'Wired'. Combined with a hot Michael Wagener production (yes folks, Michael Wagener!!), Station are the next band ready for a take-off!

The Songs
The power packed 'Everything' is just about as good as it gets in terms of melodic rock. The guitar work positively shines while Patrick Kearney vocals keeps it all together. 'True Believer' features a nifty guitar motif, this one as close as it gets to White Lion's hooky style of melodic rock. The ballad 'I'd Understand' is pretty nice, it doesn't offer a lot in the variation however but it is good for what it is. The last of four tracks is the impressive 'Don't Take Heaven Away From Me', which chugs away nicely, the big production helps immensely, giving this one a big comparison to late 80's hair rock, a la Ratt, but without the heavily reverbed guitar work from Warren De Martini.

In Summary
There are some big things afoot for Station, not the least a full length album, which will be on everyone's radar. Having just participated in May 2013's Rocklahoma event, the band have a few local East Coast gigs coming up, check their Facebook for more. Station, a band for the future.
