Scars on 45 perform ‘Crazy For You’

Scars on 45 perform “Crazy For You” at Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colorado.

Musical chemistry is like romantic chemistry. It’s hard to come by, but when you find it you know it’s special. Danny Bemrose and Aimee Driver have musical chemistry. You know it the moment they blend their voices.

We got to hear them do this recently when the band Scars on 45 visited the Garage. Scars features Bemrose and Driver on vocals, with David “Nova” Nowakowski on keys and Chris Durling on percussion. The band, from Bradford, England, was on an American tour. Their understated indie acoustic-pop has already found an audience through American TV. They’ve had songs on shows such as “CSI: New York” and appearances with Jay Leno.

They also have an indirect Colorado connection. In 2012 they toured with Denver band The Fray.

When they came to the Garage, Scars on 45 played their songs “Crazy for You,” “Golden” and “Tasted Every Tear,” then displayed their delightful personalities during their interview with Quentin.

What they brought us: A signed soccer ball (aka a football; this was around the time of the World Cup) they had kicked around with members of The Fray.
