Macromantics Moments In Movement
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Kill Rock Stars
Once a guitarist in Ben Lee's Aussie pop-punk band Noise Addict, 26-year-old Romy Hoffman has suddenly become an MC to watch. Rapping under the alias Macromantics, this Melbourne denizen makes a solid case for why she's "not your average chick." Sure, her breath control could use a little work, but Miss Macro's damn creative. Atop a mix of live and programmed beats, this MC spares the sex appeal and keeps things wildly imaginative-albeit sometimes morbid (see "Eerily Spookily"). Even her battle raps ("Scorch") will have listeners doing a double take."
