17, is my whole world. In my room, The Smiths and girls. ”

Lyrics from Prom

Not many bands can boast having met on one of the grandfather’s of social networking sites, Friendster. However, Travis Johnson (vocals/guitar) and Emily Ambruso (vocals/bass), two of the Brooklyn rock trio--Grooms, met on the once thriving social juggernaut. Jim Sykes (drums) completed the trio in 2009 after former member Gabriel Wurzel left the group, when they were still known as Muggabears. Grooms’ debut album, Rejoicer, was released in 2009 and focused lyrically on Johnson’s religious-fixated obsessive-compulsive disorder. In July 2011 the band released Prom, which on their label’s website, is said to be about freedom. While, Prom is meant to be catchier it still maintains the band’s signature shoegaze, electronic, 90’s rock infused sound, reminiscent of the days of Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and The Jesus and Mary Chain.
