EP opener Lets Excavate! really sets the tone for the EP, it’s catchy, jangly, up-beat indie rock, but not without it’s darker edges.
See The Sea is a bit of an indie masterpiece, which twists and turns from upbeat head bobber to something a little melancholy and then onto a big chorus, good stuff.
The songs really stand out, Abacus in particular is multi-layered and quite a compelling listen. It’s pretty dark and menacing sounding on times and is a standout track that ends with a killer guitar solo.
No Lights is my favourite song on here, a slow burner with a brilliant chorus.
The band are very different to anything that’s coming out of the South Wales scene at the moment, and that’s a good thing, The band as a whole sound flawless on the EP and Counting Tides is an accomplished EP and well worthy of your time.
You’ll find Counting Tides on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify from October 28th.
