Boston-based Somos is streaming "Domestic" from their debut LP, Temple of Plenty, at The AV Club. The band plays a sort of emo-tinged powerpop, but the musicianship has a punk backbone and it's catchy as all hell. Their first single, "Dead Wrong," reminded some users of Name Taken. So listen to that song if that sounds like something you'd enjoy, and if you like it you can preorder Temple of Plentyfrom Tiny Engines.
