The Immigrants
Fourtunes ~ 4-song cassette

Live at The Causeway!The Immigrants check in with "four tunes" (clever title) that recall the early workings of The Smiths and The Cure, yet have a gritty element straight out of the early Volcano Suns (The Bright Orange Years and All Night Lotus especially).

Lyrics possess a certain weirdness which is not immediately likable, yet is better than the usual pop slop that often ends up here. "Murray & Sadie" is a tale of travel companions ("We're here.").

"Enterprise Ride" and "Subway Station" add depth and dimension due to their dissimilarity.

"Long Gone" is last, both in order of quality and sequence. This is an aspect of their songwriting style I feel they should avoid in the future. 

The Immigrants are young but unusual. Please keep us up to date.

Jackie Boy takes me back to Alternative Rock Anthems like
The Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man" and Weezer's "Buddy Holly"

by Ama Cruz

Jackie-Boy Boston, MA - July 1, 2020 — I'd just like to begin by expressing how much I love the name of this band, The Immigrants, as well as the name of this song, Jackie Boy - Requiem for a Slugger.

The Immigrants blend a cool melodic, surf-rock guitar, a superb vocal performance, reminiscent of Black Francis of The Pixies, or Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, with the sound of a baseball game and a cheering crowd, rooting for our underdog, Jackie Boy. This is classic alternative rock at its best!

The instrumental performances of the drums and guitar takes me back to beloved 90s grunge alternative rock anthems like The Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man" and Weezer's "Buddy Holly" with the melodic guitars, and roughness, yet a song that makes you want to dance -- like Jackie Boy. This is a polished single!

Jackie Boy will be deeply appreciated by audiences who love alt. rock, grunge, shoegazing, and noise pop. For audiences who love live performances, or anyone seeking REAL and raw music these days, given the pop, synth and auto-tune world we are living in, be sure to check out The Immigrants. - Ama Cruz

The Immigrants

These newcomers sport an intriguing sound with an incantatory edge not too far short of compelling...

The Immigrants

Their melodic instincts are quite keen and the vocalist's phrasing is original and chuck full of irresistible hooks. The next Morphine?

The Immigrants

Amazingly unpretentious music from this duo... if you like smart pop delivered in a straight forward fashion with no frills or gimmicks, you'll want to check out The Immigrants...

The Immigrants

My favorite tunes here are "Jackie Boy," "Changemaker," and "Shot to Pieces." This here thing goes to show how cool underground music really can be.
