Recorded in an empty storefront, the debut from rock outfit Tamas contains the earnestness of a DIY project and the polish of a studio record. It Doesn’t Make it Easier embroils itself in questioning the quotidian and conveys the resulting feeling of being lost or at odds with the world around. The lyrics gracefully delve into the large complexity of difficult situations like fading friendships and the insecurity of not knowing how to love despite being so in love. Most striking is the interplay between the guitar and drums, as well as the excellent riffs and motifs that crop up throughout the album. Keep an eye on their Bandcamp for more to come!
