Bringing to mind the likes of Battles, The Bronx and These New Puritans (remember them? No one does, but they were great), Melbourne trio Hot To RoT are about to drop their very fucking great debut, self-titled EP. Through the combined forces of bassist/vocalist Loretta Wilde, guitarist/vocalist Blaise Adamson and drummer Jack Normoyle, they've crafted a rather special six-tracker, a furious blend of post-punk, disco and garage-rock. Apparently recorded during a three-day heatwave at a friend's home studio, you can litereally feel the sweat dripping off the walls, a fiery rage not helping things and a new favourite band for anyone outside of Melbourne, where they've quickly become a staple over the past six months.

"Music is catharsis and I think we have all expelled some demons through these songs, allowing us now some new beginnings," say Wilde and Adamson, and if demons were expelled from the band during this EP's creation, they're sure as hell having a great time nestled in amongst the charged math-rock riffs, running bass, angular drumming and howled lyrics... Blah blah blah we fucking love it and will shut up so you can get stuck in below ahead of its official release this Friday, and catch 'em launch it live September 14 at a TBA location.
