It would be reasonable to suspect a band who borrowed their name from the works of Friedrich Nietzsche might just be yet another pretentious act arriving on the scene but, when it comes to the rock and rhythm duo IAMDYNAMITE, it would be safer to assume the exact opposite. In truth, the choosing of the name might just be a perfect example of the band's playful and self effacing sense of humor. At first listen it becomes abundantly clear, that IAMDYNAMITE, with their thunderous beats and crunching power chords, are actually the anti- pretentious and with American cynicism at an all time high right now... the timing of their arrival could not be more perfect.
Armed with a single guitar and basic drum kit, IAMDYNAMITE have quickly established themselves as a rock and roll force to be reckoned with. The musicianship is solid, the tunes are irresistible and infectious and their energy on stage has been appropriately described as "feverishly fun". The band's distinctive sound is influenced, in part, by what Drummer Chris Phillips calls "the power rock of the 90s", while Guitarist/ Lead Vocalist Christopher Martin points to "strong melodies and lots of energy" as a primary focus for the songwriting. Though some may assume a band made up of only two instruments might be rather limited, the big explosion of sound they bring to the stage has inspired more than a few critics to observe, "IAMDYNAMITE are two guys who sound like five". Add it all up and there can be no doubt, the fuse has been lit and IAMDYNAMITE are ready to explode!
