Braxton Hicks – Never Kill Yourself EP Review

Never Kill Yourself is a lively EP from North Wales punk band Braxton Hicks. Released in 2012, it is four tracks packed into the space of under nine minutes.

Title track Never Kill Yourself also serves as the opening track. Admittedly this song is a bit repetitive, but at only two minutes long, this doesn’t really matter as it serves as a great opener.

Appropriately-titled Get Out Of My Head follows, which is a song that can get stuck in your head for hours on end. It’s definitely a catchy one and the best of the EP. The simple introduction works well before leading into a ‘fuller’ sound and I really loved the abrupt ending to the song. I was particularly impressed with the high note reached by singer Joe!

Government To Be keeps the momentum going. I really like the lyrics for this one and it’s a fast-paced little number, sounding like a track that will definitely go down well live in front of a huge crowd. I also got a little bit of a Rancid vibe from this track, which can never be a bad thing!

Final track Macho Man weighs in at just over one and a half minutes, meaning it was practically over just as soon as it had begun, but there was a lot fitted into such a short duration! It seemed to incorporate sounds from the other three tracks and was a great close to the EP.

Check this band out, you won’t be disappointed.

8/10
