The EP starts off with “Save Yourself”; you’re typically catchy, easy on the ears sort of affair that you've come to expect of such a set-up, simple melodies with the emphasis mainly on Jenna Clare’s vocals, and credit to the lady she can hold a note or two. “Promise Me” should appeal to fans of their Scottish counterparts ALTERED SKY, while “Take Control” and “Broken Family” maintain the somewhat by-numbers approach to the style of play, before we finish up on “April”. The longest track on the EP, slightly more stripped back to some extent, sorrowful but no less enjoyable.
Leopards are one of many new up-and-coming bands utilizing female vocals, and it’s great to see more ladies taking to the mic in such a male dominated world of alternative music, but whereas MARMOZETS for example pushed themselves that bit harder with their feisty, angst-ridden debut album, Leopards can’t help but sound run of the mill. There’s nothing wrong with what they’re doing, some lovely tracks here, but that’s as far as it goes. Still…it’s worth a listen.
