A Fresh Release from Wht.rbbt.obj

Some music feels like it burns with emotion, and wht.rbbt.obj’s EP Romeo Bravo Bravo Tango does exactly that, turning embers into roaring flames with every track. The songs are often distorted and pushed into overdrive, leaving you feeling as if you've been swept through a tornado. 

“Your Love's a Crime” kicks things off with a unique fusion of soul and garage rock. The vocal harmonies are strikingly beautiful and the lead vocal feels on fire like it’s releasing all the static energy that needs to explode. It's a killer groove that builds on human performances that feel like they could have been recorded and mixed by the late and great Steve Albini. . 

While “Your Love's a Crime” sets a high bar, the band cranks up the intensity with the other tracks. “Heavy Petting” sees the bass and drums lock into a compelling rhythm, with the organ and guitar lifting the chorus into an emotional crescendo. The dark breakdown serves as the perfect, ominous flourish. 

“The Ballad of Kitty Collins” and “White Rabbit Black Sheep” continue to weave a concoction of mystery, allure, and exhilaration. Both songs reinforce the sense of analog sound as if you are clacking two hammers together. A physical sound that you feel in your bones.

Perhaps the standout moment on the EP is the frenzied, fuzz-laden “Dirty Love,” where the distortion teeters on the edge of tearing through your speakers. 

Wht.rbbt.obj are just cool and really seem to embody the attitude that formed decades ago. Their attitude, the songs, and their ability to seamlessly blend genres make them a force to be reckoned with.
