Groundbreaking. Versatile. Urbanity. Complexity. Indelicacy. Smoothness. The newly refined flair, formerly known as Thy Neighbors, Ten Toes Down will forever endure the embodiment of their origins. With “Howl” the highly anticipated and well overdue rock-n-roll-rap EP is an unflinching display of an intrepid, melodic blitzkrieg of anthems which is carefully packaged into a four-song journey of the ultimate feels and the lit up mental that the band so perfectly portrays.
Standout vocalist, Ethos renders his poetic justice encrypted over the astounding rhythmic composition of thunder, snow and summertime Chi.
Along with the frontman's unreached heights of relatable yet mighty messages, his naturally spoken abilities flirtatiously capture the timeless, orchestral soundscape that genuinely legitimizes Ten Toes Down’s pulse. That is credited to the desperado guitarist, Charlie Sullivan and the heart clenching low plucks and dreadfully beautiful screams of TTD's bassist, Ramon. To cap the auditorial body together, the never capping, stick cracking drummer, Jay, provides an aptitude of patterns whose boomin' kicks and hats that, when blended together, will have Ten Toes Down deserving of a Metro headline and some more.
