• desoto jones Aurora (CD, £9.95)

    label: deep elm

    Instant gratification. That’s the best way to describe the monsters of rock known as DESOTO JONES. Going big on their masterful debut with irresistible hooks, incredible lyrics and towering riffs, every song on AURORA hits hard and lingers long. Combining post-hardcore elements with tender lyrics and soaring choruses, this arena-ready wall of sound leaves no stone unturned and nothing left to be desired. Aurora overflows with shimmering hits like “Giant Magnets” and the compelling “Don’t Fail Me.” Even slow-burners like “Sweet Sun” and the standout “Courtesy Call” crackle with electricity and excitement while holding fast to their emotional foundation. The band’s ability to inject undeniable melodies into fiery barnstormers creates a modern-yet-timeless sound that will undoubtedly have fans coming back again and again. Produced by Chris Badami (Dillinger Escape Plan, Early November, Midtown, Starting Line).
