Review: 'Elasea'
'Lesson Learnt (EP)'   

-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '11th March 2017'

Our Rating:
Check the references, the influences: You Me At Six, Bring Me the Horizon, Lower than Atlantis. I can’t even be bothered to formulate a sarcastic comment here. You pretty much know what you’re going to get.

‘Breathe’ builds an expansive, cinematic sound with some soaring guitar, and ‘Time Stops’ opens with a driving riff and again weaves some nicely chiming post-rock guitar atmospherics, but the limp vocals are a major let-down. The songs all follow a similar format: dramatic, dynamic, exciting start, settling into a morass of middlingness once it gets going.

Andy Bradford finally shows he does have some nuts, with some screamy vocals on ‘On My Own’, which brings a chunky, chugging riff, making for the EP’s standout track. But as a whole, it’s all rather samey, and, due to a lack of songwriting imagination, fails to deliver on the band’s clear potential.
