Rolo Tomassi - EP

Rolo Tomassi are a young band from Sheffield and have releases on Holy Roar and Danger! Laser! Phaser! Razor! They are an absolute beast of a band that will assault your scenes with manic guitars, spazzy drums and digital Game Boy style electronics. They also have a softer side that lures you into a false sense of security before slamming you with the hardcore edge again. They combine the hard rock edge of bands like At The Drive-In with the excellent Jazziness of Acoustic Ladyland and Fulborn Teversham. Rolo Tomassi pull all of this sonic abuse off live amazingly and with a infectious joyful energy I have to admire. The lyrics are shouted with such passion and anger in a hell of a scream that really takes you back, I was glad to see the lyrics printed on the inside of the EP as they are tough to make out, which I like its in no way at criticism. They aren't to every ones taste but then again what is? I look forward to hearing more from this lot.
