Rolo Tomassi

Far more evolved than the constraints of ‘jazzy noise’ or ‘synth-screamo’, Rolo Tomassi leap confidently from genre to genre. Moments of oddly-timed chaos flow comfortably into sanguine prog-rock workouts, otherworldly, alien noises sit happily alongside bass-led doom riffs. It’s eclectic stuff – without ever sounding disjointed.
And yes the majority of the band may only just be adults in the eyes of the law, but any issues people might have with this have been abolished by the bands obvious talent, drive and work-ethic.
