Too-Many

Seriously catchy brass house mayhem here driven by the baritone saxophone of Leo Pellegrino whose pumped up bari on steroids sound decorates some of the soundtrack of the new Damien Chazelle movie Babylon whose soundtrack is by Justin Hurwitz, on the track 'Call Me Manny.'

Erstwhile busker sensations Too Many Zooz with Pellegrino are trumpeter Matt Muirhead and drummer David Parks on 'Cane Dangler' is in a groove like something you'd hear on a Beyoncé banger - take that drift if you journey past the riff into the synth undertow and beat reminscent of the style of 'Crazy in Love' a tad. 'Command No Go' again completely centred around a chunky riff here with boisterous synthed up harmonies screaming behind and highly compressed production sound adds something and is the other pick of the EP. The energy is no-nonsense but extraordinary in terms of impact. And you get that sensation on 'Call Me Manny' to boot and continue this party of all parties vibe.
