Jeremy & the Harlequins have the '50s on the brain, while possessing their own take on the sound and style of the first rock & roll decade. On the band's second album, 2016's Into the Night, lead singer Jeremy Fury performs the requisite vocal gulps and somersaults that are the stuff of rockabilly rebels then and now, and he has a clean, forceful instrument when he goes for a more straightforward delivery. Guitarists Craig Bonich and Patrick Meyer put down layers of guitars full of echo, twang, and rumble. Add in the spare, steady pulse of bassist Bobby Ever and drummer Stevie Fury (Jeremy's brother) and what you get is a stylized variation on first-era rock that's cool, confident, and not without its charms. Jeremy & the Harlequins strive to evoke the sounds of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, the Everly Brothers, and Eddie Cochran, with a contemporary twist. Into the Night is solid proof this band has created a signature sound that sets it apart from its peers. ~ Mark Deming
