High Rope – Tracklisting

High Rope

Torus is a UK Desert/Stoner Rock Duo with a cool Alternative Feel to them. There new single High Rope is a mixture of early-QOTSA/Kyuss vibes with catchy Foo Fighters style vocals and poppy based lyrics. The song is quite addictive and shows a band with genuine promise. Torus easily capture the swagger of 90s Desert/Stoner Rock and match it with a modern Post-Grunge flow.

The lyrics are good and brings you into Torus upbeat world. Some folks may complain that this maybe too “Poppy” to be considered Desert/Stoner Rock but I would call this song a great throwback to 90s Stoner Rock with a hard-rocking Alternative Edge.

I’ve checked out the guys other music videos on YouTube and I’m impressed what the band has to offer and they have written some other excellent songs such as Hold On, The Feeling and Make You Mine which you can also check out on BandCamp as well.

I’m hoping Torus have an EP or full length album coming out in the future. As these guys have a new fan right here. So get on board with TORUS.
