Two rock bands rose to the top recently with their perspective mini albums and different approaches to rock music. Romantic Punch with their latest EP, ‘It’s Yummy,’ bring a different take to each track, but keep their humor intact. On the other hand, T.A. Copy’s ‘The Restoration’ takes pop-rock on a straight road with great peaks. If you’ve been itching for a rock fix, both of these acts might just be the cure.
‘It’s Yummy’ is an exploration of different rock styles. The EP opens with the intro track “Romantic Punch”, a guitar-heavy track with electronic flourishes, both features that are highlighted within the set. The EP is set perfectly with the lines “Romantic Punch! We’ll rock them all!” The set begins in earnest with the electro-rock track, “야미볼 (It’s Yummy)”, a catchy, up-beat tune making you want to dance. The track bounces with an understated bass line and fervent drum playing that brings it to life. “야미볼 (It’s Yummy)” reminds me of the Scissor Sisters – piano-rock music fit for a party and falsettos galore. With lines like, “Try this one; it’s yummy”, you know you’re in for a good time.
