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.
This week's new sets include the return of UK's Foals plus local acts Last Dinosaurs, The Snowdroppers and The Paper Kites.
