Don't look now, but St. Louis is experiencing quite the indie-pop resurgence thanks in part to the Domani International
. Vocalist Josh Brett (a veteran of area bands such as Simple Mary's Diary) specializes in breathless, impassioned enunciation that conjures Greg Dulli (a self-avowed idol). But songs from the DI's debut EP, This Is_The Domani International
, would be setting the hipster blogs abuzz if the group hailed from NYC. Shades of Ambulance Ltd. and Doves abound, in the form of sparkling-ice keyboard grooves, Britpoppin' guitars and hooks galore.
