“Quentin Tarantino would probably like Orlando's Alias Punch. Their sound, an ample helping of fuzzed-out guitar tones wrapped in the cheeky badassery of a 1970's-era B-movie, seems right at home in the background of some afroed-out she-ninja fight scene, western church massacre, or whatever other imagery would surely get Tarantino's directorial rocks off. Snakeskin, their latest EP and single, is not a far cry from that sentiment either. Produced for (or as?) the score of a locally-produced horror flick of the same name, the title track is a 10-minute epic venturing from dark and brooding to frenetic and weird. At times, it hinges on the verge of complete deconstruction — random swells and roars pushing needles into the red with no discernable backing rhythm — before suddenly roping you right back in with reverb-soaked passages just born for the background of some moustache-heavy car chase scene awash in a haze of warm film grain.”
