Too Many Poets are menacing. Their music evokes a sense of compelling unease, with lyrics that frequently twist the macabre into infectious hooks, sung in a voice that can slink between an imposing Jim Morrison baritone to a devastating and desperate punk howl. The band's twin guitars bleed atmosphere, punctuated with artful stabs of powerful yet melodic interplay. The rhythm section hits as one unit, poised and powerful. Their gothic tinged art rock is ripe with emotion, poeticism and the visceral power of a band moving as one.
Their new EP 'Tough on the Tightrope' is out now, and sadly will be their last work.
