Los Angeles-based Irontom sites their influences (big,
Led Zeppelin power chords crossed with energetic arrangements reminiscent of
early Artic Monkeys) or the fact that guitarist Zach Irons and drummer Dylan
Williams are the respective son and nephew of rock and roll journeyman Jack
Irons, original drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers and assorted rock legacy
(Pearl Jam, Joe Strummer etc). In fact, Zach was taught to play guitar by Chili
Pepper veteran and guitar hero John Frusciante.
Irontom, however, is it's own beast, and The Loose EP
, is out now, Their mission
statement: a four track blast of effects-laden grooves, Brit-Pop-inspired
climaxes and soaring vocals.
Produced by Alain Johannes (Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the
Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Chris Cornell), The Loose EP
is proudly epic and grand, a
direct repudiation of lo-fi skuzz littering the indie scene, and a triumphant
return to classic rock and roll, complete with big hooks and big swagger, and
best of all, a sense of irony-free fun.
