Gentle sadness is at the core of these tunes & this is reflected in the lullaby-like vocal delivery. This style of singing works so well, not only on the quieter tunes, but also on the heavier, noisier guitar numbers that are Lash Out & Die, giving them a nice balance. Peroxide is perhaps the most delicate of the four tunes, stripped away, introspective & powerful. Trepidation sounds like a band from the Seattle Grunge scene has stopped, thought & partially unplugged after hearing the Red House Painters. What we get is a compelling start to a highly listenable ep.
