Release: 24 August 2015
My Cruel Goro (Italy-Iceland) set to release eponymous debut EP
FOR LOVERS OF: Ash, Arctic Monkeys, The Fratellis, The Hives and early LIbertines, Dinosaur Jr., Weezer
“A terrific Janus-faced creature, with strong elements of celebrated 70s bands such as The Clash, The Stranglers, The Jam, and The Vapors on the one hand and, on the other, the raw pounding modernity as Ash, Arctic Monkeys and even Weezer“ – The Sound of Confusion
“A fast-paced, knock-out EP… bursting with noisy, riff-laden, alternative-rock tracks that will make even the most reluctant fan start throwing themselves around like an angst-ridden teenager” – Gigslutz
“Young sonic spunk, full of vigour in the best punk-driven rock-o-rama way possible. These guys know how to create a beautiful ruckus” – Overblown Magazine
Hailing from Italy and currently based between there and Reykjavík, Iceland, three-piece My Cruel Goro present their debut eponymous EP, featuring 3 tracks chalked full of early 70s energetic Brit rock with punk leanings, yet through the prism of a thick modern soundbed. It’s no wonder they are getting so much attention from the national press in Italy and that bloggers have referenced such paramount artists as The Clash, The Stranglers, The Jam, Ash, The Fratellis, Arctic Monkeys and Weezer.
My Cruel Goro is Andrea Maraschi (vocals, guitar, programming),Andrea Marcellini (bass) and Tommaso Adanti (drums). The first two met nine years ago through a mutual friend and have been making music together ever since. My Cruel Goro arose from the ashes of their previous project. “We couldn’t find reliable musicians to form a proper group with a stable lineup. Everytime it ended up being the two of us: Andrea and I,” explains Andrea Marcellini. “We were joined by drummer Tommaso and formed the band in 2014”.
These same concepts have been interwoven into their music videos, all of which are produced by Massimo Scoposki and are being revealed one by one. The video for ‘Crapford’ is premiering in The Sound of Confusionand the video for ‘Glue Buzz’ is premiering in The Record Stache.
Watch ‘Glue Buzz’:
“All tracks are superb and bring to mind a whole whack of comparable bands – all of them great. We leave you with 4 words: potent virile raw sound” – Jammerzine
“Comes with punk spirit, noise digressions and post-rock intros. You like your music a little dirty, fast and loud? Get groped by My Cruel Goro’ – Osservatori Esterni
