NOT CRYING WOLF

 

 

There a Sugar meets Soul Asylum early nineties alt-rock vibe going on with opening track ‘Pieces’ and it’s not at all bad. Made up ex- members of the Almighty and the Flamin’ 8’s Supercharger sure know how to bring a riff to the party and after an opening like that they go and mellow out with a throw-away pop-punk number ‘A Major (Headshake’ , which despite its catchiness is rather Wildhearts-lite. Saying that every time I replay this one it gets better! So far, so good. ‘Cartoon Smile’ is lighter still but in an uplifting way: definitely the poppiest here and leaving me rather undecided…

 


It’s our favourite track ‘Sceneshifter’ with an Electric-era Cult-like opening flourish of guitar to begin that elevates this EP from merely nice to ‘must hear’. It has that missing ingredient – blunt force and bags of attitude that seems to be missing elsewhere, it’s as good a song as we’ve heard all year and hopefully somewhere close to where the band is heading. ‘Hallejulah’ too has that stripped bluesy guitar wail to start great chorus and intricate twisting breakdown. It’s a great song to close and one of the most promising EP’s we’ve heard all year.
