All attempts to define Rolo Tomassi have failed to do the Sheffield five-piece’s anthemic, broadly metalcore sound any justice. The band is split by dichotomies, unafraid to explore and develop their sound from album to album, and even song to song. This latest record, which serves as the finale to the trilogy of Grievances (2015) and Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It (2018), demonstrates the best aspects of Rolo Tomassi. It flits elegantly from gut-churning hard rock melodies to world-building harmonies – and everything in between.

This methodology is epitomised in latest single Drip, which showcases Eva Korman’s vocal talents as the ethereal poignancy of her clean singing is punctuated by her screams’ caustic ferocity. Genre remains unwelcome and unnecessary.
