The Renzullo Project is on trend with the current state of the Australian music industry. Just think about the popularity of acts such as Boy & Bear, Gotye, Kimbra, Sia and even Washington just to name a few.
In the same vain as the likes of Angus & Julia Stone for instance, The Renzullo Project are an indie band. The EP ‘Touch the Ground’ has a very organic sound which is also cleverly emulated in the title.
The strength of the band lies in their musicianship. Their ability to play their instruments sets The Renzullo Project apart.
Although the band are alike to other bands in the same genre, the fact that ‘Touch The Ground’ opens with a pure instrumental track sets the pace for the rest of the EP.
Each of the songs on the EP is reflective of life in the main. In some ways the EP is based off of life experiences also and the world moreover.
In short, they are songs which lyrically make you think and question. However the genre lends itself to a cruisy vibe. Therefore the EP remains light hearted and carefree.
The standout track by far is ‘Alight Ye Traveller’; funnily enough this is the opening instrumental track.
The EP is the perfect accompaniment to a lazy day at the beach or a balmy summer evening.
They are a really cool band. Somehow they can confidently sit alongside recent ARIA winners such as Boy & Bear, Gotye and Angus & Julia Stone and yet they can standalone as a brilliant new Australian band that are worthy of all the support the Australian public is willing to give them.
The Renzullo Project is a band on the rise and ‘Touch the Ground’ is only a small taste of what this band is capable of.
