With Here Comes A Riot, the IDENTIKIT formation around guitarist Marzio Scholten presents a powerful follow-up to Garage Moi. In fact, quite literally, as the opening track “Here Comes A Riot” blends Scholten’s forceful chords with snappy sax lines accompanied by thumping drums.
With the EP, the band manages to convey a sound that is both easy to digest and imaginative at the same time. On Here Comes A Riot, IDENTIKIT purposefully blurs the lines between jazz and (indie-)rock music while retaining the same sort of mood throughout. Also, the fact each each song was recorded in a single take gives the EP the spontaneity it needs.
