Genre Zero / Press

"The combination of the heavy beat, prominent violin and Isbell’s seemingly uncontrollable bouncing around inspires the audience’s knees to jerk...they always put on a thoroughly enjoyable show."

"...Genre Zero usher a style of power alt-rock that I wish was more common in today’s local scene. With their recently released EP, vocalist Joshua Isbell wails in a John Darnielle–esque fashion to an upbeat, percussive tempo and rolling violin textures. The lyrics (which read like Beat poetry when on paper) consist of bittersweet ballads of lost affection...Regardless of whatever genre they’re branding themselves, their songs are catchy and effective."
