The Guildford and London based ‘sad-pop’ outfit have captured the rawness of their live sound in the release that was recorded in just two days by former Our Lost Infantry frontman Thom Ashworth. Taking the previously acoustic releases of ‘Learning from American Mistakes’ and ‘Word and Object’ and transforming them into fully fledged pieces of emo/pop-punk art.

The stand out track for me has to be the lead single of the EP ‘All Unwritten Classics’. With the climax of the song starting with frontman Joey singing the words ‘all unwritten classics start with you’ followed by simple but incredibly affective guitar solo and the crashing of cymbals and snare rolls.

You can download the EP through Rose Coloured Records for free here now!
