Rhombus is a punk band with absurdist tendencies. They have a hard-bitten sound that mixes with silliness in a way that reminds me of early Ween, when every heavy metal anthem was tempered with some under-the-counter chemical to form a queasy mélange. I watched a video of Rhombus live performing the State Farm Insurance jingle, and the perversity of the sing-along it inspired and the death metal it morphs into reminded me - once again - of Ween's ill-fated Pizza Hut jingle. It seems to me that Rhombus, an all-girl band, strives to really deliver an experience at their performances. Also featured in the video was some sort of flashing Minotaur with a pair of crash cymbals walking around the crowd. You know you want to see this.
