Roaring compliantly down the safe centre of the overpopulated 'Emo' genre...
Maybe there’s a rock equation which states the more balanced and perceptive an individual, the less likely they are to create music that headbutts its way out of the contemporary parameters. In interview Wilt’s Cormac Battle shows every sign of being a fine human. He hates global corporate domination. He’s into originality. He coined the superbly ironic phrase “Shopping is the new music”. Odd then that his band’s tune about a psychiatric patient ‘Take Me Home’ should roar’n’rumble so compliantly down the safe centre of the overpopulated ‘Emo’ genre. ‘Take Me Home’ is fine if [a]Jimmy Eat World[/a]’s your idea of radically brilliant. Otherwise try Wilt’s ‘My Medicine’ album where the Celtic REM in them gets to run amok.
