Laconica is a dark, melancholy-pop, solo music project of New York native, Justin D’Amico. A child of the ‘80s, Justin has imbued Laconica with stylistic nods to the earlier efforts of The Cure, and Siouxsie & The Banshees while also incorporating some of the electro / industrial influences so much loved by fans of the wide Goth genre. In an attempt to categorize his music in relation to his influences, Justin has dubbed Laconica's style as "post-goth" and hopes to see this label gain currency among music writers discussing bands that are actually known to the public.
