Following the release of their latest superb sonic offering “Ghost,” hailed as a “funky groove-rock jam,” American four-piece RUSSO has released their incredible debut EP, “House With A Pool” worldwide. This electrically-charged 7-track collection includes previous smashes including the Karen O-esque debut single “Lonely,”  praised as a “high-energy, head-banging track loaded with sass,” as well as their most recent release, the guitar driven, grab-you-by-the-ear “Ghost,” which the band describes as “an emotional banger that deals with the complexities of being in a relationship with someone who has become a shell of themselves, a ghost.” 

New tracks such as their latest single “Loudmouth,” which dropped today alongside an official music video directed by Toronto-based collective, Kid. Studio, is a spunky dance-floor anthem for the ages, complete with a foot-stomping bass line and infectious scream-along chorus. 


“Bad Things,” showcases the band’s strong rock influences and penchant for 90s ska-pop, with its murky and menacing retro-rock influenced tempo. Lastly, their EP closer, “Joyride” is a sweet and soulful rock ballad that still manages to hold on to its edge and grit. Reverberating throughout the EP is a certain energy, an underlying rebelliousness that seamlessly carries from one song to the next, creating a cohesive collection of songs that will simultaneously make you rage into the night while tapping into your emotions.
