What You Do Comes Back to You
"dinosaur rock for the new millennium" Karmatruffle is a band with something to say. Signed to a UK independent label after only six months together, this four-piece outfit has been delighting audiences all over Europe with it's raw brand of sixties-influenced power pop. The band's first single, 'She's Not All That,' was released in July 2005. This is what Alan Haber, host of the Pure Pop radio show, had to say about it: 'I've just been to your CD Baby page and I'm absolutely floored! This is great pop-rock, well-written, bowing to the past, but very much here in the present. I'm knocked out by all three songs on offer: the rocking 'A Better Way,' the Who-meets-garage rocker 'She's Not All That,' and the very sixties mid-tempo pop song 'Let It Go,' with it's entrancing melody and hooky chorus (also, very cool guitars). The whole package rocks with confidence: great vocals and songs, and the playing chops to make it all happen. A full length is on the way? I hope it comes soon...these songs left me wanting more. You guys are very talented!' Luckily for Alan the full-length is available now from CD Baby! Released on the Rockhopper Records label, the album thrillingly captures Karmatruffle's live sound and covers every aspect of it's diverse repertoire. From the Small Faces influenced 'I Wanna See You Again' to the Mersey-sound of 'Trying To Get Out Of The Rain', it's clear that Karmatruffle is still indebted to it's sixties heroes. However, more contemporary influences can be felt on tracks such as the indie-rockers 'Burned Out' and 'Humankind,' and in the Elliott Smith-esque introspection of 'Sugar Baby.' Check out Karmatruffle's 'What You Do Comes Back To You' for yourself and see what all the fuss is about!
