Reliably informed

This is a fun, inventive EP from William Cawley. Simple riffs, layered with deceptive harmonies on 2 Girls get things off a strong start. 5 ft 10 is a fun jaunt, the opening riff sounding something like if The Smiths wrote Pretty Vacant. The lyrics echo another great band in The Buzzcocks. Natalie continues this feeling, and it is executed well. Regine Or_ ends the EP on a strong note, with a great riff driving the song. Some strange production choices do plague the song, and there’s a sense across the EP that some of the songs could benefit from a slower tempo, to allow them to breathe.

Nevertheless, this is a solid, extremely fun EP. It may not be high-concept or groundbreaking, but I defy you not to have fun with it.
