Revenge Piñata / Press

“Revenge combines your traditional drums, guitar, vocals and electronic synth-keyboard to produce their original sound. In addition the electronic sounds Nick pulled out a Recorder Keyboard for a couple songs and rocked the show. Some of the 8-bit tones took me back to a day when I would wake up early in the morning to hit the power button on my NES and play any game from that generation.”

"Mitchell’s lyrics can be Soul Coughing-ly blunt, but some are loaded with literary references. With his “state it like it is” voice, songs cover topics from “playing football with my best friend” to The Color Purple. He’s big on the concrete, making use of straightforward lines mixed with lighthearted sounds, bringing about a heavy irony in the delivery. But there is nothing clouded, no hiding — the lines are real. You believe it like it is. Revenge Piñata’s members might have incredibly varied backgrounds, but they’re all gifted and versatile and, on stage, they seem to gel effortlessly. The songs are intricate, multi-dimensional, non-traditional and roaming, but they’re still incredibly tight. At live shows, there is less keyboard layering, but there’s an extra kick from having the rhythm section instead of solely programmed beats. 'The drums are way better in our live show,' Mitchell insists."

"Let's say this entry is for people with a special taste. "Electro/ Pop" sounds way too normal as a genre description for what these guys are putting on this record. Starting with very catchy electronical instrumental songs like "Proximity Love Song", over slow love songs like "Bubblegum", to sung songs that are almost exlusively electronically produced like "Ritas with Nancy", they seem to try every idea they could come up with."
