Donoma (pronounced Do-no-ma) is native American Omaha origin and means "sight of the sun" and is generally used as a girl´s name, but it´s also a rock band from Wisconsin, formed in 2008.
There is also a pop band from Marseille, France with the same name but let´s not confuse things.
"Falling forward" is the second release from this female fronted rock band that consists of Stephanie Vogt - Lead Vocals, Israel Alpizar - Drums, Nick Campolo - Violin, Shelle Mounce - Bass and Timmy King - Guitars.
So what do they sound like? Well, imagine a punk-ish version of Jefferson Airplane mixed with the 90´s rock of 4 Non Blondes if they were the backing band in Rocky Horror Picture Show, and you´ll get Donoma´s new album "Falling forward".
There are songs that will take you back to Woodstock in 1969 and the voice of Janis Joplin, while other songs belong in a sweaty punk rock club in London, 1977.
I can´t say that I´m a fan of the entire album but I do like some of the songs like "Memory", "Sick" and "Come with me".
