JSA are back with an EP.
JSA are a five-piece alt-rock band from Croydon. They originally formed back in the late 00's, but the band went on hiatus after a few EP's. However, the band is now back together and they're releasing their new EP on the 14th, which is this week. And I'm coming to you early with a review of the new EP 'Ghosts'.
The EP was mixed and mastered by Alan Smith.
The EP is 5 tracks long, and the first track is Everything. It's a pretty solid track, not my favourite on the EP but it's still good. It's definitely a good opener. The lyrics are beautiful and both the vocals and instrumentals compliment that.
The second track is Factory, and honestly, I love the intro to this track. It's a little more laid back than Everything, and in a way, this one gives me a sort of Busted vibe. The lyrics are great though, it almost sounds a bit like Mayday Parade in a way, which I wouldn't complain about because I love Mayday to bits. The song does pick up a bit further on in the track and it's pretty great.
Then we transition into Untitled which is mainly instrumental with the vocals virtually muted, but it's quite a good filler song. I don't have a problem with filler tracks if they're decent and this one actually is.
The second to last track is Restart, and again it reminds me of another song but I just can't pinpoint it, and it's actually quite a nice song. It's more stripped back, similar to Factory and it's actually quite relaxing. It gives me slight Taking Back Sunday vibes.
The last track is the title track Ghosts, and I think this is my favourite off the entire EP. It's again stripped back at the start, but it picks up. It's very much a classic 00s alt song, and the entire EP carries the same vibes, but it's good. It stands out from other bands and a lot of the other music on the scene.
I would 100% recommend you check it out, because you could really enjoy it. The EP comes out on Thursday, so make sure to keep a note of that and check it on when it's released. Overall I'll give it a 4 out of 5 lemons.
