Southern Rock with a stomp, a country tinge and a Zeppelin-like swagger makes this sadly short three track EP one of the most tantalising releases of the year so far as you ponder if they can keep this quality up on a full-length release.


If you like it rootsy and bluesy then opener ‘The Reckoning’ has enough style to make its presence felt and enough twists and turns to keep you more than interested till the last strains of guitar and the sound of  crickets fade out. Whilst ‘The Reckoning’ may be the best song here the other two tracks give it stiff competition.


‘Leave Me Be’ is almost as great a song, with again great lyrical depth and closer ‘Fingernails’ completes the set by upping the heaviness and the scope to encompass earthy Blues before rocking out with abandon.


The question of course is can an album be as compelling – if it is we have a serious contender here.
