With the vocals of pianist and frontman Rory taking priority over the music, this four track collection begins on a strong note with ‘Remember’. A catchy little number, bound to have toes tapping and individuals singing along by the chorus, it offers a welcome introduction to the band. Follow-up ‘Come Easy’ brings with it a slightly rockier sound, with the instruments strumming away tightly in the background – it’s not as good as its predecessor by any means but it certainly isn’t terrible.
‘Fear’ meanwhile begins as a stripped back ballad, but it soon ups the tempo to reveal yet another strong piece of musical art and it’s hard to resist clapping along to. Few bands can keep the strength of their material maintained for an entire record and SS are no different as the next and final track ‘Watch Your Back’ is without doubt the weakest of the lot and such is a shame for it ends the EP with a whimper rather than a bang.
