The debut EP from a Cheltenham team who've been around for two years. They've got plenty of good ideas - a decidedly catchy guitar riff can be heard on "Free Me", while the eery synth intro on "Oh For His Grace" has a touch of Brian Eno about it. What stops the whole thing from taking off is that Louise Wright's voice doesn't always seem suited for the crunching guitars while the lyrics are a tad too stereotyped to sustain interest. But despite its deficiencies, the band play tight and well throughout.
