Kasper Rosa - EP 2

Rating: 6

Hailing from Belfast, instrumental quartet Kasper Rosa showcase a great deal of dynamic intent, impressive musical nuance and subtlety here. Sat musically somewhere between Explosions In The Sky and fellow countrymen And So I Watch You From Afar, they are all at once chiming, shimmering and soaring – all the things a good postrock band should be – yet equally unafraid to get down and dirty by chucking in a gargantuan riff of Oceansize-esque proportions, or a doom-laden passage that builds to a cacophonous and apocalyptic crescendo. While this is ground the likes of Oceansize and Mogwai have plundered before, Kasper Rosa are worth watching out for.
