Reliably informed

Earth Farm’s dedication to the soundscape of larger-than-life rock is what separates their EP, Even Cicadas Get the Blues, from other genre work. From the chanting found in the eponymous track to the drawback of slower, acoustic-driven start of The Second Song, there is a surreal ability which keeps the listener guessing.

Whether that is through the rock-heavy electrics of what follows the aforementioned acoustic intro, or the loud brilliance of Revolving, Rotating. Two short tracks break it all up, and Earth Farm nail their pace and tempo, rounding their EP off with the solid Flood For Thought. Running the risk of feeling scattershot, Earth Farm hedge their bets and piece together an often angry, off-kilter piece of bedroom indie rock excellence.
