Album Review: The Static Age/Featuring Yourself - Split EP

image

With split EP’s, you’ve always got the possibility that one band will produce an incredible track, whilst the other may create something that’s a little…drab. Or you could just end up with an EP that is a stinking pile of rubbish.

Thankfully, The Static Age and Featuring Yourself have teamed up to create a solid split. The Static Age, a trio hailing from Chicago, kick off proceedings with ‘Mistakes Worth Making’. Melodic riffs are combined with soaring and atmospheric vocals, before they launch into a cover of Featuring Yourself’s ‘Abyss’. Haunting, poignant piano keys open this track, before weathered vocals come into play. Textured and stunningly unique riffs overlap with quietly strong drumming.

Live Review: Bangers, Slingshot Dakota, The Static Age, Calvinball & Caves – The Bay Horse, Manchester - 13/08/12

Despite Model Radio pulling out and a late start, tonight’s DIY show is a classic example of how such mishaps are miniscule in comparison to the solid positive performances from tonight’s roster of great punk bands.

Kicking things off on the double are the brilliant Caves from Bristol who deliver a fuzzy buzz of indie punk melodies. The toing and throwing vocal harmonies of bassist Minty and Guitarist Lou provide an enjoyable tight set. They have provided a brilliant head turner of a performance and awakened the anticipation for the night ahead.
