Enter: Robbery Inc.
Torres shows his prowess by blending his raw vocals and poignant lyrics with his massive rock guitar sound and masterful solos. Jonah Wei-Haas expands the sound playing both bass and keys, moving in and out of the foreground masterfully, while Matt Hankle lays down a relentless rock groove on the drums with polished fills and solos. Together, the trio delivers a certain layered, head-nodding flavor of blues-infused rock that sticks in the listener's head well after the song has ended, satisfying rock fans of all sub-genres.
The first recorded results from the trio are captivating, and much looser than Torres’ previous work. Girl I Wanna brings a garage rock swagger, while Crave and "Skin" showcase a big guitar sound without being heavy for heaviness sake. More recently, there’s Honeybee a soulful groove about regret.
Rock is alive and well, and Robbery Inc is solid proof.
