The Tomatometers – Boys Would Always Look Down

This is the third release from The Tomatometers, which is basically one guy called Bruno. The title track is rather pleasant indie pop, Bruno’s voice rather assured, but also fragile, providing a lovely counterpoint to the gorgeous understated melody. You Don’t Know Us wends its way merrily along, twisting and turning and evading your capture. The tune may be a bit on the twee side, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but the voice is strident enough to pull it off. The End Of The Road is mournful and a little discordant, the sombre attitude proves rather fun. Finally the acoustic version of the title track proves a welcome addition, stripped back and beautiful.

Boys Would Always Look Down is self released and out now. Find out more about The Tomatometers and order a CD here
