The first time I saw The Chain Gang of 1974 live, I was hooked. Last New Year’s Eve they opened for Crystal Castles in Boulder, Colorado and in my opinion, stole the show. Kamtin Mohager really built a sound for himself, something fresh, with a reflection of the past but also looking into the future. His haunting vocals remind me of a blend between Matt Berninger of The National, Robert Smith of The Cure and Dan Whitford of Cut Copy (all voices I need in my life). TCGO1974 is one of the most buzzed about bands of 2011 and they deserve all of the buzz they can get. Go get their album Wayward Fire now on iTunes! You won’t regret it.
