Ramonda Hammer: On Ramonda

Hammer's searing debut LP "I Never Wanted Company," frontwoman Devin Davis takes a

hard look at her struggle between despairing loneliness and embracing independence. The Los Angeles

quartet's blistering guitars and Davis's paint peeling vocals

recalling past greats like Hole and likeminded contemporaries like Mannequin Pussy form support for lyrics that grapple with two years of emotional upheaval for Davis.

Since the band released their 2017 EP Destroyers, a release that cemented Ramonda Hammer as a

tentpole act in LA's surging community of woman and queer

fronted bands, Davis struggled to come to

terms with her codependency, fought against her own overwhelming over analysis, and got into her first

queer relationship. The result is an album that's br

uising, cathartic, searching, and ultimately

therapeutic. Featuring production by Alex Newport (At The Drive In, Bloc Party), I Never Wanted

Company is a powerful and triumphant return for the quartet

including Justin Geter on guitar, Andy

Hengl on bass, and Mark Edwards on drums.
