Ninja Gun’s newest release is a fresh new folk sound from an old punk-influenced band. The Roman Nose EP is something that will brighten your day due not only to how catchy and melodic it is, but also because Ninja Gun blends genres you’d never think could — or should — go together so well.
Blending violins, acoustic guitars, and drums, Ninja Gun is a punk band, a folk act, and a rock n’ roll crusade all in one. “Lepers in Love” mixes the sounds of a typical rock song and a Romeo and Juliet type serenade into one awesome track that catches your attention because you’d never think those two sounds could go together until you actually hear it.
Old sounds, songs, and styles that sounds new and original again? That is what Ninja Gun is all about on this EP. Fans of straight folk and punk music may not particularly enjoy these songs, but at the same time opens up doors for people who want some poppy sounding music that goes that extra yard. Ninja Gun packs in such a punch with Roman Nose both musically and lyrically and is worth a listen to if you are bored with your current music library.
