2. Ab Initio
O X B L O O D S fire themselves on to the scene with this EP, showing fans and new listeners alike that they are a band to be watched.
Opening with ‘Alpha’ you are immediately hit with polished melodies, riffs galore and gargantuan sing along choruses that are guaranteed to be firm live favourites when O X B L O O D S hit the live scene. The album flows perfectly, and you can see their influences quite obviously. However, the EP showcases their individuality rather than them being cloned copies, which makes it stand out even more.
I couldn’t choose a favourite from the whole EP, but 'Vagabon' is the one that stands out the most for me. 'Collisions' is an entire EP of catchy songs, punchy riffs, intertwining melodies and fantastic songwriting, from start to finish.
I will definitely be keeping an eye on O X B L O O D S, especially for the live circuit as these songs will be huge live.
