Album Review: The Arachnids - Lack Of Control

26 September 2013 | 4:24 pm | Stephanie Tell

The EP’s lack of sophistication is partially made up for by the band’s liveliness and commitment to their craft.



Simple but effective pace and rhythm changes are weaved into opener Until The Sun – an infectious, expansive pop tune. The harmonising finish is also executed brilliantly. Unfortunately the style and understated quality of this track isn't revisited, though the energy is cranked up. Daydreaming begins the shift towards naïve yet catchy pop-rock songs with funk influences and a little edge. These tracks also demonstrate some skilled, crooning vocals, though they do come off as a little contrived. The EP's lack of sophistication is partially made up for by the band's liveliness and commitment to their craft.
