Mononoké – ‘Tom Finigan EP’ [Review]
No matter what the mainstream magazines might have you believe, it just doesn’t get any cooler than this.
Although this EP is somewhat easier to categorise than Falsense’s Death of a Hidden Influence or EaglePrawn’s EP, it is no less unique. Mononoké’s rough-edged technicality brings old-school Biffy Clyro to mind; their home genre’s penchant for predictably unpredictable odd-meter and none-more-syncopated writing remains resolutely present; and there are a pair of tongue-in-cheek song titles sure to tickle film buffs (Leonardo Di Caprisun) and win the hearts of diehard Die Hard fans (Happy Trails Hans). I love this; it almost feels as if this EP were written especially for me.
