Reviews Oedipus Covetous

Oedipus

Covetous

Oedipus, a three piece making more noise than a three piece rightly should, manage the type of grandiose guitar rock both melodic and epic, while never coming across as trying too hard. Their latest EP, Covetous, offers seven over-sexed, balls out, tracks at a clock time of just under half an hour. Vocalist/bassist Jeremy Haffner’s harmonic wail sets the band on an equal playing field to any radio-friendly group you’d find on your local “alternative” station, while the subtle use of keys put Oedipus in a position to get them there. With a steadily growing cult following, and an increasing reputation for an amazing live show, Oedipus are something to keep both eyes on.
