Fresno band Amoret makes pop-infused synth rock that will draw easy comparisons to the Canadian band Metric, or possibly Paramore — especially given the powerful vocals coming from frontwoman Christine Graham. The band, which formed in 2011, released “Hrzn,” a four-track EP, on Tuesday.
It celebrates the release with a free, all-ages show Saturday, Jan. 31, at Peeve’s Public House. Fresno’s indie-dance-rock band Tomi Jean opens.
