The Domestics

The Domestics would call themselves “a working-class band,” in the same way that domestic beer is working-class beer. “If we can pay our rent at the end of a tour, we’re happy,” drummer, bassist and singer Michael Finn said. Financially stable or not, The Domestics are one of the most promising bands to emerge from the Portland scene in the past two years. Of the band’s debut album in July 2015, songs like “American Drag” reveal its classic, pop-rock sound influenced by The Beatles and The Velvet Underground. Last spring, The Domestics finished a second album which will release sometime in 2017. Leo London, who wrote all of the lyrics for the new album, said it will be “darker, heavier and more orchestrated.”
