Lemuria was supposedly an ancient civilization which existed prior to and during the time of Atlantis, and existed largely in the Southern Pacific, between North America and Asia/Australia.


Lemuria is also a Buffalo-based indie pop/punk trio, consisting of guitarist/main vocalist Sheena Ozzella, bassist Jason Draper, and drummer/vocalist Alex Kerns. They formed in 2004 and have kept busy ever since with self-released EPs and touring.

Now however, Lemuria are set to release their debut record, “Get Better”, which is promised to be full of “tight melodic punk songs”. And having heard some of the tracks, I believe they may very well be telling the truth! “Pants” is quite irresistible in its lyrics as well as its melody, while “Get Some Sleep” is a tight number, showing the band’s ability to make good, under-2-minutes-long songs. (because that is the magic time limit when it comes to punk, right?)

Main singer Sheena has a very endearing voice, which in combination with the label “catchy pop/punk” might scare some, but trust me – this isn’t at all like Avril Lavigne or any other pseudo-pop/punk like that. Because this is good.

“Get Better” will be out on April 1, 2008.
