RockTimes Review: Mark Duda “Month of Sundays” (translated)

9 May


“The singer and guitarist Mark Duda from New York City’s East Village has just made a brief statement with “Month Of Sundays”, six songs on one EP. The music reveals different sources, from the melodic rock to the American punk movement. Basically this rock is played straight, with a certain passion and very melodic and harmonious. In his way, he sounds a bit old-fashioned, sounds like old Golden Earring or Rick Derringer .

With an experienced band – played with Joan Jett , Billy Idol , Blue Oyster Cult , Rolling Stones , Dion – the music gained in quality and qualified realization of the relatively simple and catchy songs. Arno Hecht on the saxophone, for example, still has a special sound color at “Standoff Love”. Here, too, one seems to have traveled back several decades by means of a time machine, as the comparison with Dion fits into a more rocking garment.

Apart from that, you can hear many bonds to the Seventies and Eighties, and here it is the ballad “Worse For Wear”, reminiscent of the best moments of Rick Derringer of those days. The ending is then the cool “Connection” – provided with a certain lasciviousness – as well as “Subway Song”, a drifting, full-dry play with a light punk attitude. These numbers are lovely examples of how very good and uncomplicated music was produced on a high level without many flair and seemingly without effort.”

Month Of Sundays was released on April 14, 2017 through True Rock.
