Bridges – Colour The Sky EP review
I must have said this about thirty or forty times but the calibre of bands coming out of South Wales at the moment really is incredible, and the debut EP from alt. rockers Bridges is no exception to this.
This 5 track EP contains some outstanding songs, first track ‘Stick To Your Guns’ is so well put together it’s hard to believe this is the bands first release. The song has a great chorus and the melodic verses really drive the song along, singer Ross Dixon has a cracking voice and definitely shines on this track.
‘We’re Not Your Enemies’ is another huge sounding track with a massive chorus. The riffing by guitarist’s Grant Roberts and Alyn Evans is outstanding and the drum fills by Martyn Howell really make the song stand out.
‘Try Something Different’ is a slower track and loses none of the power and passion which this EP is filled with, the rhythm section of bassist Liam Toomey and drummer Martyn Howell really bring it on this song.
My favourite track on the EP right now is ‘Voices’ and driving track with a huge, killer chorus and an excellent set of lyrics and a melodies that stick in your head for days.
These are the kind of finely crafted rock songs you want to listen to over and over, so great to hear in a bands first release.
Final track ‘The Weapon’ finishes things on a high, a fast paced rocker which Ross’s vocals really take to the next level
The whole band really play their hearts out on this EP, the performances all flawless and the production by Todd Campbell is crystal clear.
Bridges are playing an EP release show on Thursday April 4th at Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff, tickets available from the webstore, and you really should make sure you get down to it and support this amazing band.
