“The Next Big Thing” is just one of the singles which you will find on the gorgeously titled EP “Passion Aggressive” from the up and coming NY-based artist Shout At The Robots.
Shout At The Robots may have plenty of competition when it comes to mesmeric vocalism within Post Punk. But with the velvety larynx of their vocalist, they were never going to be the underdog. But that’s not to say the Alt artists kept their sound within the safe confines of just one genre.
Instead of creating a predictably dreary soundscape, Shout At The Robots threw plenty of aural curveballs in The Next Big Thing. Including but not limited to increments of riotously feisty Punk and explosively intense instrumental breakdowns soaked in sonically caustic guitar effects.
I’m infinitely excited to see what comes next for Shout At The Robots, you’ll join me in that anticipation as soon as you hear their intellectually artful tracks unfold.
You can check out The Next Big Thing for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.
