Reliably informed

What Onlooker do best is crunching post-hardcore with a twist of spoken-wordiness and Easy Breezy might just be the strongest track yet from the Teesside rockers, as it lurches from angular riffs to heavy speed-bass and a chorus for the masses.

Taking cues from the likes of Idles, Futureheads, Sonic Youth and Pavement, Easy Breezy could be the carefree clarion call some of us need by way of gentle encouragement when things really open back up back up after so long, and “the clean air flowing through my hair” lyrical theme is right on the button. Two-minutes-twenty-five-seconds, one false ending and some dogs barking later, and it is all over before it has started. So, play it again. Do it now.
