While ‘serious’ music enthusiasts might cringe, ultimately this EP doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not.
Opener 23 Seconds sounds like it could be the backing to a montage in a rom-com. It's pure pop, unashamedly so; melting harmonising dreamboat vocals into naïve, melodic rock tunes. This inoffensive, teeny-bopper offering has a certain '90s air, but evokes a more general, timeless pop sound. The folksy, lyrical Road Rage is the gem of this release. Backed by his full band, Twomey's beautifully crooning vocals mesh into a track that is simultaneously emotive and upbeat. While 'serious' music enthusiasts might cringe, ultimately this EP doesn't pretend to be something it's not.
Veterans lead this week's releases with new albums from Tim Rogers & The Bamboos (Album Of The Week) and Daniel Johns plus albums from Ella Thompson, The Vaccines and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
