Comma's first EP is an interesting fusion of strong childhood influences - touches of Don Caballero and Tortoise can be detected alongside a much gentler musical sensibility.
Each track has a character of its own whilst happily contributing to an impression of Comma's over-arching musical direction, which will no doubt only continue to distinguish the band from the totemic inspirations of its youth.
PRAISE FOR COMMA:
"Intricate and proficient, this EP of post-rock tom-foolery is a real treat... only gets better on repeated playing... delightful rhythmic skits and splices throughout... a blend of weaving melodies and instrumental excellence, falling on the right side of math rock, where the clever time signatures and rhythmic jiggery-pokery is matched by melodic guitar lines... Comma are an exciting proposition and have made an accomplished and stirring debut."
- Is This Music?
"Intricate math/post-rock that reminds me a bit of the parts of Tortoise that I like? Yeah, I'll have some of that please... Check the EP out, it's a really strong debut."
