Normally when writing a review, we choose a few of our favorites…but I can’t choose a song I like best on this EP! I love every single track. Things that stick out to me: the opening riff of “Streets” is awesome and I love the vocal delivery.  Great choice as the EP opener. “Talk” is one of the faster tempo tracks, and the lyrics are awesome. It’s upbeat, rhythmic and relatable.

“The more they talkity talk

The less you walk walk walk

And the more they squakity squak

The more we walk walk walk away!”

“Only One” is perfectly aggressive, the guitar riff on “Riots” is infectious and has quintessential sing-along vocals: “The bell tolls. The riots roll!”

“Kill You to Live” has an awesome breakdown and the build up is well placed and timed.

Reminds me of: Suicide Machines, Black Flag, Bad Brains, Pennywise, The Buzzcocks, Rancid, Ten Foot Pole, Dwarves, Murder City Devils, TSOL, The Muffs.

Overall: Production wise, I think this EP is very well done. The drum sound is punchy and in your face but not overpowering, the bass and guitar tones are energetic yet still warm, the keyboards are mixed very well, providing a lush harmonic noise floor, and both vocalists deliver tireless, passionate words that you know they believe in. This band is not posing at all! This recording captures their energy and enthusiasm which I can only imagine is equally as good live.

Be sure to catch the Wild Lives EP Release Party this Saturday at Streets Of Denver with Cheap Perfume and Vic N’ The Narwhals. Get your tickets soon as this banger is likely to sell out!
