In the center of Chicago’s Rock and Roll renaissance sits Dan Rico (EGO, MAMA) who pairs glammy punk rock with vintage pop crooning to arrive at a sound that splits the difference between David Cassidy and Marc Bolan. Rico’s self-produced debut LP, Endless Love, veers between snappy punk tunes and laid-back love ballads, spurred by Rolling Stones-y guitar licks, Prince-influenced vocal harmonies, and minimalist electronic elements. Drawing from the impressive garage, soul, and underground aesthetic catalogue of his hometown Endless Love juxtaposes a striking mix of styles beneath a unifying umbrella of Rico’s Television-esque croon and unfettered pop structures. Sure to make your eyes wet and your heart sing, your fist pump and hips shake, Endless Love condenses the last 50 years of pop and punk music into a delicious, low-calorie, nostalgia-laden package.
