Album Review: Morain - Are We Lost - Already Heard
On Monday November 3rd, Midland hardcore punk band We Fight Like Kids release their
debut EP, 'Superficial Behaviour'. However we're premiering their new video for 'Falconer'
right here on Already Heard.
For Scottish quartet Alburn, their latest EP ('Mouthful of Glass') has been a longtime coming. Having undergone a slight line-up since their formation in 2007, 'Mouthful of Glass'
showcases a significant amount of growth and maturity. We spoke to Pete Duthie to ask him about the bands background, that inevitable Brand New comparison, the Scottish music
scene and more.
On first listen we fell in love Noyo Mathis and knew that 'Endure' needed to be heard. It's post hardcore meets emo meets indie meets math rock. Take a listen to the full EP right here.
Without a doubt Neck Deep are one of this years breakout bands. After kicking off the year
with the release of their debut LP, 'Wishful Thinking', the Wrexham pop-punk five piece
haven’t stopped touring since. From festival appearances throughout the UK and Europe to 2 months in North America as part of the Vans Warped Tour. We caught up with vocalist Ben Barlow and bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans at the Leeds Festival. They discussed their past festival experiences, supporting Blink-182, their up and coming UK headline tour and being
“leaders” of the UK pop-punk movement.
Packing stadium sized rock anthems with an incredibly striking emotional punch, and graced with one of the most staggeringly unique vocal talents to have graced the UK Rock scene in a long time, Cambridge’s Lonely The Brave have become one of the single most talked about new bands to emerge in recent years. With their debut album ‘The Day’s War’ finally released this week, Already Heard caught up with lead guitarist Mark Trotter and Bassist
Andrew Bushen at last weekend’s Leeds Festival.
We've got a full review, live photos and interviews from one of the highlights of the summer - Leeds Festival.

Album Review: Morain - Are We Lost

When a band releases a debut album or EP the band has to be able to impress listeners and also keep them listening at the same time as well. Morain’s debut EP definitely does impress with a mixture of soaring lead guitar melodies and deep bass lines mixed with some memorable lyrics it’s a good first EP.

Opening title track ‘Are We Lost’ starts off slow and slowly builds up as the drums come in it bursts into a flurry of melodic guitar tones. Lead vocalist Wil Frost’s lyrics are sincere as he sings “and we say hey we need your love, we love the way you move” they standout and are a memorable part of the EP.

The song ‘Animals’ starts off with a mixture of lead guitar parts and some prominent bouncing bass lines. The song has a great summer feel to it with the infectious lead guitar parts going back and forth with the bass lines it is one of the EP’s stand out tracks.

‘The World We Live In’ has a happy feeling to it with the upbeat lyrics running throughout the song it is a good positive happy go lucky song. Last track on the EP ‘Between The Lines’ starts off with a strong bass line and guitar tone it is a song that will definitely go down really well and sound great in a live setting.

Overall ‘Are We Lost’ is a good little EP and showcases the musicianship of the band and gives the listener a feel into what the band are about. With only the rockier side being covered on the EP I’m interested in hearing their acoustic softer side as well. But with a future possible full album release and some tours under their belt the band will have everything they need to go alot further and become alot bigger.


‘Are We Lost’ by Morain is out now on Indigo Records.
