Broward native Marco Argiro has come a long way from his days fronting the beloved local punk rock trio, the Outrights. In a time when preteen was still preteen and the "tween" nonsense had not entered the lexicon, Argiro and his mates had the chops to turn heads and become an integral part of that mid to late '90s punk rock scene. Relocating to Tallahassee after high school and eventually to New York post graduation, Argiro's been a busy, busy man with bands like Le Mood and the Killing Floor.
He's recently released a solo venture titled Love on his own Outright Rock Records, and while there's still that power chord love buried within the compositions, his travels and experiences and ever-expanding influences come through in an effort that is sublime shoegaze, psych-tinged, and mellow post-rock ambience.
We recently had a chance to catch up with him and discuss his transformation from preteen local rocker to transatlantic crooner. And, we're 1. impressed by the sheer amount of work he's put in, and 2. happy to report on one of our own, getting out there and making it in the music world.
