"Led by guitarist/songwriter/vocalist Devin Davis, Ramonda Hammer is a Los Angeles-based four-piece steeped in the sounds of 90s alt rock and college radio." - She Shreds

"Ramonda Hammer strikes a thin dichotomy between thrasher-pop anxiety and a rocker's shoulder shrug." - Earmilk

"Ramonda Hammer have perfected an indie-rock sound that’s equal parts power and melody."-  LA Weekly

"Crunchy, grungey, no-B.S. ’90s-style alt-rock, with Davis’ gritty vocals wailing through the quartet’s muscular hooks and rhythms." - Buzzbands LA

Ramonda Hammer have shared the video for their new single "Zombie Sweater" with She Shreds Magazine.  About the video Ramonda Hammer's Devin Davis says:

When has bologna ever been the star of something, barring Oscar Mayer commercials from the 70s? Let's be real, it's kind of the redheaded stepchild of deli meats. In the last month, however, bologna is making a serious comeback. In our new music video for "Zombie Sweater", directed by Polaris Castillo, we see Hungry Guy played by Ariel Gardner, running for his life to protect a coveted piece of bologna. It was filmed all around the Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park, including at local businesses Barney's Liquor, Book Show, and The Hi Hat! We were going for a saturated daytime vibe, reminiscent of some old Michel Gondry music videos, which was nicely captured in that part of town. Much like the songs music and lyrics, the video's content is kind of sassy. Meant to entertain, you can think about it or don't think about it... it's out of our bologna-stained hands, ya know? 

“Zombie Sweater" is available on New Professor Music via Bandcamp and all streaming services now. The song follows up their critically acclaimed album Whatever That Means which was released in the spring of 2016. Ramonda Hammer will be performing at SXSW. The band’s full schedule of upcoming shows will be announced shortly. 

Ramonda Hammer is a grunge-pop project from Los Angeles, CA. To answer the question you’re inevitably going to ask, the band’s name is taken from a lady who was featured on the once-popular reality television show Cheaters. The show, in and of itself, represents how front-woman and band founder Devin Davis views life - it’s a mix of sad and funny, some people learn and some people don’t, and we take what we can to do what we can. Plus “Ramonda Hammer” just sounds cool.
