Boomkat Product Review:
Having released their eponymous debut album back in September, The Early Years are already throwing new material out there in the shape of this new EP. ‘Say What I Want To’ is somewhere between the melodic sensibilities of The Smiths and the sort of textured wall of sound you’d hear from a Kevin Shields record. ‘On Fire’ follows with some impeccable motorized krautrock-isms, whilst ‘Autumn Song’ shows the band in an altogether looser mode, characterized by a slowly drifting post-rock. The last of these four songs is a slice of semi-electronic ambience, loaded with floating synth drone and shimmering guitar. Good work this, leaping between sub-genres very much in the same space rock bracket as the likes of Melodic’s Working For A Nuclear Free City.
