Gloom-Pop? Is there really such a thing? Well, if you saw Gloomsday‘s last few local shows or have listened to their 2013 release “Paradise Tossed,” then you know the answer is a resounding YES!
The two piece bash and crashers Gloomsday, featuring guitarist Justin Cota and drummer Lori Sokolowski, have devised a formula that jumbles a handful of genres. Their ability to layer thick, aggressive guitar with catchy grooves is what fuels their lively sound. It’s loud, loose, and full of heavy rock thunder. Live, they whip up an infectious energy that can’t help but leave you wondering how these two create such a thick sonic wallop.
