Reliably informed

Succour’s self-titled debut EP is a tension-building, chord-bashing blanket of grunge, which is apt considering their final track is entitled Blanket of Misery. Wormhole initiates the EP as self-assured and confident.

Leaning towards their softer side, the coolness of the verses cuts through the heaviness of the intro and chorus to create something familiarly accessible in its head-bobbing punk. Cymbals and shouting infiltrate the entire EP, but find interesting meaning in the third song Endo, initially released during Endometriosis Awareness Month to draw attention to the condition. Succour ends with its heaviest track, leaving a lasting, head-tingling impression reminiscent of a live performance. Invasive, weighty and proud, Succour pull their weight and more.
