Dolce Vita ep (1984, Brain Eater)

Dolce Vita's brand of MTV-friendly power pop/wave wasn't especially innovative, but for their good fortune, pretty damn effective.  I could easily picture this EP sandwiched in between the likes of the Red Rockers and Serious Young Insects, with Duran Duran occasionally elbowing themselves in.  Hope that last part of the equation isn't a deal-breaker for any of ya'll, because there's some devastatingly catchy moments here.  Enjoy (or not).

01. Beginning All Over
02. Looking Away
03. Break Down Those Walls
04. Never Let Go Now

Thanks for sharing, introducing us to this lost gem...very catchy, fits right in nicely within a playlist of the some of that era's greatest songs...not sure how this was overlooked first time around.

One of the best posts on this site, GREAT EP. I agree with Rob...not sure how this was "passed up".

Perfect 80s modern rock.
