The moment we've all been waiting for has finally arrived, and Distant Blue have finally dropped their highly anticipated debut EP.
The EP opens with Tongue Tied and yes, this is a song we've heard before but it's a song we all love!
I have previously voiced my opinions on this track and I'll happily voice them again.
I LOVE IT.
One of my favourite things about Distant Blue is how well they pull off their sound. Some bands can't always pull off the sound they're trying to be, and it makes me really happy when a band can pull off that sound, and Ed's voice is perfect for the sound.
I don't want to focus too heavily on the songs that have already been released because I don't want to be repeating myself, and there are some SOLID new songs on the EP!
The next song is Lucid Liar (Novocaine) which again I've voiced my opinions on. Again, I absolutely love it. I think it's a solid song, and lyrically I love it so much. I love Ed's vocals, and I really do see Distant Blue achieving great things. They're a really good pop-punk band and this song showcases that perfectly.
The next track is called Blue Noise and it's exactly that. It's simply just an instrumental track. But as filler tracks go, it's actually a good one, I'm not saying my deaf little ears want to listen to it on repeat, but it's a filler track and it's actually a good filler track. As filler tracks go, I'd put it on par with Serious Underground Dance Vibes by Twin Atlantic, and that is possibly my favourite instrumental track.
The fourth track is Come and Join The Party and I remember hearing this live at Dot To Dot. And the studio version definitely does it justice. It isn't one of them tracks that sounds completely different to the live version, and I actually really like this track. I'd go as far as to say it's my favourite off of the EP. It's a solid track and I'm actually in love with it. It makes me quite happy hearing the track cause it's just such a solid song!
The final track is titled Opiate which of course my little emo, addicted to pills, heart loved this before I even heard it. It's another solid track and I can't criticise any of the tracks on the EP because they're all amazing and I love them all to bits. They're all bangers, and this track is no different. It's got a good flow to it, and it makes me really excited to see them live again!
Overall, it's a solid EP and I cannot recommend it enough. You 100% need to go and check it out, and overall? It's getting a solid 5 out of 5 lemons 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋
