Elemantra from Salamanca, New York. The track "Dose of Irony" is jammy jagged indie post punk wonderfulness

From Salamanca, New York, Elemantra is a self described "creamy and dreamy" alternative noise rock band and the song Low Dose of Irony is this piece of jammy jagged indie post punk wonderfulness. The obvious young vocals strains add to the appeal and the guitar lead breaks longer than your average indie rock fare give it a kind of proggy tone. When the guitar break happens two thirds in and the bass mirrors the notes it feels like a pivotal scene in a teen movie. Love, love the aesthetic here and want to see the sequel.
