Strange Bones - 'Blitz Part 1' EP Review
2. Give Me The Sun
3. 24 Calibre
If you’re looking for a calm relaxed piece of music to listen to then jog on, this really isn’t for you!
I have listened to this a few times now and still can’t decide how good it is. It hits some real highs but doesn’t quite maintain them throughout the EP, what I would say though is when they hit those highs they are as good as I’ve heard.
There is a mix of Industrial, Rock and a slightly more Experimental side in this EP with an almost Punk undertone. At one point I thought the third song was going to morph into Muse.
It’s never less than worth a listen. I missed their recent tour, I wish I’d heard this before as I think they would have been fantastic live if they can transfer the energy from this EP to their live shows.
The single 'Give Me The Sun' is the strongest song on the EP, but it’s closely matched by '24 Calibre'. The only song that didn’t 100% work for me was the opening song, 'Vicious' but I could see what they were trying to do and I think they almost got there! It’s my lack of connection with the first song that stopped me saying this was a five star EP but it’s so damn close! They say they will be realising more EP’s throughout the year, I for one can’t wait!
