Holy Roar – March 2nd

Holy Roar’s flagship band continues to lead the pack with a sparkling new release. For early detractors it was easy to dismiss Rolo Tomassi as a curio, but the group have had time to mature and metamorphose into a more nuanced beast. Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It is a bright counterpoint to the tarnished gloam of 2015’s Grievances, and easily their most melodic offering to date. At once accessible and sprawling in scope, Time… delivers powerful blows with its harmonies, placing the song writing at the forefront ahead of technical proficiency. Special mention must go to drummer Tom Pitts, still relatively fresh behind the kit, whose sensibilities for a direct rhythm appears to have resulted in the band ringing in tight unison.
