When the original Cute Is What We Aim For lineup disbanded in 2009, bandmates Dave Melillo, Jeff Czum, and Mike Lasaponara joined together to form Nocturnal Me, a band with an incredibly varied, but surprisingly catchy music style. After adding bassist John Viavattine to the mix, the four-piece released two EPs and are currently gearing up for the release their third, a brand new EP entitled Two Faced. Blending a wide range of musical genres, Nocturnal Me produce pop music with funk, hip-hop, and rock roots to blur traditional boundaries with their own unique spin. Despite the variety of styles fused together in each song, Two Faced is an incredibly cohesive record of distinct-sounding tunes; one that shows plenty of promise for a band that is still refining their sound. With the band’s steadfast do-it-yourself mentality in mind, Nocturnal Me should continue to improve and grow in the near future.
Their new EP, Two Faced, is scheduled for a July 19th release via Apparition Records. You can listen to lead single “Love Is A Lie” below.
