I’ve been a fan of Constructor for several years now, having seen them live a fair few times back when I lived in Cardiff, and a review of their MMXIII EP was actually one of the first things I contributed to the site, so I was rather excited to see their brand new self-titled EP drop into my inbox at the tail end of last year.
Once again, it shows the band firing from all cylinders and it’s a powerful release with a lot of bite and aggression to it. There’s so much energy and momentum to the EP that you barely have time to catch your breath as Constructor power through the five tracks in fifteen minutes flat, and once again I have a feeling that all of these tracks will pack a real punch in a live environment!
One of the best things about Constructor is how consistent they are. Sure, this EP may not stray too far away from their previous releases, but it still sounds fresh and exciting. Each of the five tracks are engaging in their own way and a particularly good element is how the tracks flow; the EP is almost like one continuous track with five different parts to it, and I especially like the way the EP progresses from opener Before A Committee Of Dice to second track You Know Nothing almost seamlessly, courtesy of the latter of the two immediately starting with an in-your-face bellowed vocal delivery.
As a whole, this is another strong release from Constructor. It is a well-rounded EP and an exciting listen – and if you haven’t heard this band yet, then what on earth are you waiting for?
