Opening track “Trapeze” softly seeps out of your speakers with a really mellow, almost sleepy tone. It’s gentle indie rock, very hushed in its delivery, aside from its chorus, leaving you with a feeling of “oh…” rather than “ooooh!” but it’s a pleasant start, nothing wrong with the track as such but it’s a timid introduction.
“Animal” seemingly has a little more life to it, crunchier guitars, an almost grunge-like tone and when it kicks off properly it’s a welcome riff driven number, albeit a familiar one…anyone else recognise the slight hint of “Fortune Faded” by RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS as it gets going? Just me? It’s there! Coincidence or not; a solid track none-the-less…
“Into The Night” returns to the delicate, ambient tones of the first track, at over five minutes long it does appear to go on a little bit but it’s got some fairly boisterous segments that’ll wake you up If required, before we finish on “Holy Hands”, which is a classic case of leave the best until last. It’s a good quality, straight up rock song, easy on the ears, and over before you can fully appreciate it, making you want to hit replay. Again, there are subtle similarities to the likes of RHCP, but this time in general style as oppose to any section in particular, it’s got that feel about it and all in all, it rounds the EP off nicely.
In Requiem may have only been around since, well, May, but they are clearly eager to get the ball rolling early on. Obviously there’s a long way to go before they’re a fully polished outfit but more live shows, more hard work and ultimately more patience, I’m sure they’ll be around for some time to come. Until then, enjoy this for what it is, rough and ready, there’s nothing wrong with that at all.
