Reliably informed

Melt are a Newcastle-based trio who describe themselves as grunge and they serve up this little gem of an EP, Engine. It’s not my usual cup of tea, but if these tracks were to come on my playlist, I wouldn’t skip them.

There are elements of Rage Against the Machine and Pearl Jam present. I bloody love guitars and this has plenty of that; Recall, is slower in pace and feels more vocal led, while Sweet, for the most part, feels hazy and chill. Violence makes the most of the rhythm section and has plenty going on to keep me occupied and interested, and closer Blu bangs the same drum against the other tracks. I can see this EP being a banger in the mosh pits. Bravo lads.
