This fresh faced four-piece from Dorset have really stepped up to the plate by producing, engineering and mixing their first release all by themselves. In some areas they've really succeeded, such as Max Baker-Hytch's guitar tracks, which have a good feeling of presence to them. The guitar work throughout this EP is very good and Mr B-H sounds really talented in the fretboard department. In other areas however, they could have done with an engineer. Becky Rewse's vocals sound really thin and strained due to lack of treatment. The drumming is filled with good breaks and patterns but could have used a bit of tightening up as they don't quite sit right in the mix. The strongest song of the EP according to fan accounts (and mine) is "Today" with its Smith-style guitar jangling. It easily has most memorable chorus of the four lyric-based tracks. For the most part though, the song melodies try too hard to find a natural shape which makes the lyrics really hard to grasp at times. Overall, the effort was good but more skill is definitely needed to see this West Country team make a national dent.
