The buzz about New York-based rock band My Pet Dragon can be attributed to their anthemic songs and powerful live show. Strong pop melodies and soaring vocals define their newly released LP, Mountains and Cities which has been described by The Deli Magazine NYC as "the ideal soundtrack for that cross-country, convertible drive under Augusts’ everlasting sunshine".
'Mountains and Cities' also boasts contributions by members of Mercury Rev, Gov't Mule, and Hurricane Bells. The record was produced by Stephen George, the former drummer of the band Ministry. George has worked with a wide range of pop artists including Iggy Pop, the Cars, and Common.
The 5-piece melodic rock band has been compared to Coldplay, the Smashing Pumpkins, and the Flaming Lips. The Electric Panda music blog out of Brooklyn says "if you remember a time when rock music on the radio was GOOD – My Pet Dragon is your band."
