Lightness and sweetness…those are the words that come to mind while listening to Holy Pinto’s new EP. Gold Leaf exemplifies that with a soft indie rock beat and sharp lyrics. Salt brings forth the more pop-punk elements with a much more bouncy rhythm, Bitter Enemies leans more to the rock side of things and Very Adult is a pacey, punkish tune.

All excellent tracks with a wonderfully clean sound that highlights the stellar musicianship on show here.

The EP closes out with the melodious and groovy King, a perfect showcase of the wickedly good vocal performance. All while adding some extra touches to show Holy Pinto have plenty more in the tank.
