THAT MAG - Ramonda Hammer, Destroyers EP

Ramonda Hammer - Friday, August 04, 2017

"Though, the guitar-driven four-piece channels, arguably one of the most iconic eras in music, they are able to carve out their own notch in the music scene with their unique musical landscaping, introspective lyricism, and emotionally raw vocals. Ramonda Hammer is a band that successfully tackles the grunge landscape without sounding flat, emotionless, and definitely without blending in."

Ramonda Hammer - Friday, August 04, 2017

"Devin Davis' knotty, unguarded wail and Justin Geter's distortion-heavy, brutally melodic riffs on tracks like the churning 'Bender' and the breakneck 'Care to Slam?' are like an alternate Nineties where L7 was the biggest band in the world."

CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND - Ramonda Hammer deal with an inter-band relationship on new song “Too Much, Too Recently”

Ramonda Hammer - Tuesday, July 11, 2017

"The track is a melancholy bit of ’90s alternative, with heavy rhythms dragging a dreamy guitar line behind them. With a final yank at the bridge, the guitar aurally breaks free, pushing Davis’ frustrated acceptance skyward as she belts, 'So it’s over now/ Well it’s over for now/ And I can’t help wondering how many times before.'"

POP OCCULTURE - Ramonda Hammer “Bender”

Ramonda Hammer - Friday, July 07, 2017

"Ramonda Hammer is back once again with their own brand of hi-fi emotionally raw 90’s alt-pop. 'Bender' was written while binge watching Shameless, and the grit might have rubbed off as this is one of the most angsty songs I’ve heard so far from the Hammer. The new EP is shaping up to be something really special!"

THE GREY ESTATES - mp3: "Bender" - Ramonda Hammer

Ramonda Hammer - Wednesday, July 05, 2017

"The grungy, menacing guitar and constant, pounding drums play as a musical depiction of the dark side of our thoughts, with vocalist Devin Davis howling through the struggle, confessing to hours of TV watching and the frustration of just wanting to be okay. It's a more than accurate auditory representation of how terrible and anguishing the battle to get better can be. And as the track closes out, we're left with one glimmer of sunshine, a hopefulness that appears even on the darkest days."

Ramonda Hammer - Monday, June 26, 2017


"'Destroyers' musically embodies everything that made me fall in love with the band to begin with. From its dirty dissonent guitar licks which gives the tracks a heavy brood at the outset, eerie pixie like voices that swell into the chorus where Devin Davis grittily wails with gusto, baring her intense soul, this track is grunge in all its epicness."

Ramonda Hammer - Friday, June 23, 2017

BUZZBANDS - Stream: Ramonda Hammer, ‘Destroyers’

Ramonda Hammer - Tuesday, June 06, 2017

"Kicking off in a weary mood, 'Destroyers' grows increasingly agitated with each heated chorus, until the kettle boils over, and the instruments plow into each other, reaching chaotic peaks of distortion as Davis delivers her plea: 'They with sinister dynamics made a mess in our heads, if we’re not in it together then we’re pawns till the end.'"

"But at the end of the day, it really is Devin who commands the stage, and brings it all together. It’s not only her voice and the songs that she sings, but it’s also the aura that she emanates. In my opinion, the band’s sound is rooted in the grunge sonics of the early 90s, and Devin just seems to embody that whole eras attitude."

Ramonda Hammer - Friday, October 28, 2016


"Their music sounds familiar and conjures up past memories and listening experiences- the whirling guitars reminiscent of the Pixies, undertones of The Cranberries and early Gwen Stefani-like vocals – but their sound is completely their own. A light layer of grunge covers the anthemic musings of Davis and hard-hitting instrumentation of Andy Hengl, Justin Geter and Danny Louangxay."

Ramonda Hammer - Wednesday, October 26, 2016


"Frontwoman Devin Davis’ wounded, almost punch-drunk wailing is backed ferocious rhythms from Andy Hengl and Danny Louangxay and some equally biting leads from guitarist Justin Geter, whose tones seem to have materialized from a ’90s hangover. Loud/soft, aching/buoyant, pretty/not … Ramonda Hammer keeps all these dynamics in play, and makes them appetizing."

BROOKLYN VEGAN - Ramonda Hammer following debut LP w/ new single “Zombie Sweater,” on tour

Ramonda Hammer - Tuesday, October 25, 2016


"Devin’s voice has already picked up a few comparisons to ’90s-No Doubt-era Gwen Stefani, and she does indeed sound a lot like Gwen. They’re mostly similar to No Doubt’s pop punk side, or the grungier stuff that was going on around that same time. Devin and the rest of the band all seem to agree that they sound like the Pixies, and Devin also name drops Bully and Dilly Dally as two modern bands she’d like to tour with (both of which also came to my mind while listening to Ramonda Hammer)."

Ramonda Hammer - Tuesday, June 21, 2016


"Ramonda Hammer is a grunge-pop project from Los Angeles, CA, but the band as a whole is greater than the sum of its unconventional parts. Not your typical musicians, the four band members lead particularly unique lives that add just the right spice to create an eclectic live performance. Frontwoman Devin Davis provides the motherly direction, emotion and songwriting for the music, while Justin Geter adds his flair on expressive guitar riffs. Andy Hengl goofs it up on his clever basslines, and Danny Louangxay vibrantly hammers the drums."

EARMILK - Get hooked on Ramonda Hammer's "If, Then"

Ramonda Hammer - Wednesday, June 08, 2016

"The video pans around raw emotions by way of the girls' faces, tears, and movements, rather than stringing together any sort of explicit story. It works for them, too—beneath the obvious sheath of chokers and watery mascara, Ramonda Hammer strikes a thin dichotomy between thrasher-pop anxiety and a rocker's shoulder shrug. As founder Devin Davis explains, 'We take what we can to do what we can.'"

Ramonda Hammer - Monday, June 06, 2016

"I was initially drawn to the song because of the classic alternative rock sound but as I listened to the song more, I really began to notice lead vocals Devin Davis. Something about the track itself reminds me a lot of Bully’s slower songs but Ramonda Hammer do a slick job of throwing it back to 90s alternative/garage rock sounds and while Davis’ vocals do seem a bit high for the track at first, she really makes it work."

BUZZBANDS.LA - Video: Ramonda Hammer, ‘If, Then’

Ramonda Hammer - Friday, June 03, 2016


"If life weren’t riddled with so many stupefying contradictions, then we wouldn’t feel paralyzed by doubt and angst. And, as the new Ramonda Hammer video suggests, we wouldn’t feel like the objects of our desire (like our bottles of beer) were suspended in mid-air just out of our reach. The L.A. quartet — Devin Davis, Andy Hengl, Justin Geter and Danny Louangxay — screams it all away on 'If, Then,' a track from their grunge-y album 'Whatever Than Means,' released in April. The new visual, directed by Michael Chance and filmed in part at the Smell, stars Meghan Cox as a soul in a state of disconnect, finding a kindred spirit in singer Davis’ confessional conditionals at the song’s powerful close: 'If you’re hearing this song, then I’m something / If you’re singing along, then that’s something / If you’re crying like I am, I guess that’s something / And I’m not the only one who feels like nothing.'"

Ramonda Hammer - Friday, June 03, 2016

"One of our favorite rising acts is Los Angeles' Ramonda Hammer. Their anthemic indie rock is delicate, accessible and memorable. As for their videos, the same thought that goes into crafting their tunes is how they make their clips. Their latest video for "If, Then" retains the cinematic element, and we're premiering it today. The clip sees the main character going through a hellacious day before ending up at the band's concert and ruminates from there."

Yet at the same time, there is a defiance in her message and vocals."

About The Track: 'Goddamn Idiot' is the first single taken from Ramonda Hammer's upcoming album, 'Whatever That Means, due out 29th April.

"When you see the word “grunge” there are a few images that come to mind. The obvious being Cobain. What I loved about hearing Ramonda Hammer though is that you don’t see him or anything close. Well, that’s a lie. Being that this LA-based band is more on the grunge-pop side, you hear that 90’s influence and could see these guys and gal going back in time and playing a college show alongside Liz Phair and Hole. At least that’s what can be heard when diving into their latest single, 'Goddamn Idiot.'"

THE DELI MAGAZINE - Ramonda Hammer Releases Video for "Goddamn Idiot", Play Show at Hi Hat on 3.14

Ramonda Hammer - Wednesday, March 09, 2016

"Engaging in indie rock melodies with grungy guitars, Ramonda Hammer are the latest to bring back a nineties alternative rock aesthetic with its clean riffs and antipodal dynamics. Fronted by the soft, though passionate vocal delivery of Devin Davis, the four-piece somehow keep things grounded with a honeyed melody that never becomes either too scruffy or drenched in an excess of reverb. The band has just released a video for “Goddamn Idiot”, which takes a comical slant by taking cues from defunct trash reality TV show Cheaters. The satirical nature of the video is more on the lighthearted side, though it doesn’t in any way limit their songwriting smarts; instead, we get a band so confident in their abilities that any major contrast to their sound only helps to enhance their still-nascent careers with a lively shot of personality."

I'M JUST THE BASSIST - Women Fuck Shit Up at The Smell

Ramonda Hammer - Tuesday, March 01, 2016


"About a week ago I was approached to review Ramonda Hammer’s set at the Women Fuck Shit Up festat The Smell in LA. Somehow I was unaware of the festival, which is organized by Kate Nash’s Girl Gang, Good Grrrl Bad Grrrl, and ODD Records three awesome outlets that empower women in music and raise awareness to various women’s issues. The festival featured sets from Colleen Green, Allsion Weiss, Upset, Wasi and many other badass acts.

Unfortunatley, I was unable to go to the fest, which took place this past weekend, on February 27th and 28th, but Devin, the singer and guitarist of Ramonda Hammer wrote about her time at the show. Huge thanks to Devin for the review. Hopefully next year I can go, cause by the looks of it, I missed out!"

I begin to recall my last experience with the Salton Sea during a brief photo shoot and the smell was all I could remember. I prayed this time that the makers of Fabreze had figured out how to mask the dead fish smell that lingered the air all year round. Walking up to the house, a car pulled into the driveway and Danny Louangxay (drummer) met me and walked me in to meet Devin Davis (singer) and Andy Hengl (bassist) in their dog friendly pad. In the kitchen was Justin Geter (guitar) monitoring the bagels that were too large for the toaster."

This video is a creatively smart introduction to Ramonda Hammer as it allows their new audience to see that they aren’t afraid to have fun while offering a nice taste of their upcoming album, Whatever That Means, which is set to release later this year. “Goddamn Idiot” definitely offers a spark of curiosity for more music and I can’t wait to hear what more they have to offer in 2016."

"Ramonda Hammer got firsties. The L.A. quartet — singer-guitarist Devin Davis along with Andy Hengl, Justin Geter and Danny Louangxay — released the first single of 2016 at 12:01 a.m. today (PST), and it’s a rager. “Goddamn Idiot,” the first single from the forthcoming album “Whatever That Means,” is a muscular throwback to 1990s from a four-piece that calls its sound “grunge-pop” but whose wall of sound might be equally indebted to the British shoegazers from that era."
