Insert Clever Title Here, Such As "Setting Fires Sets Fire to Your Ear Canal"

One word: depth.

The density of the music vs. Mat's somewhat airy vocals is the juxtaposition people crave in music. It sounds like evolution and desperation. It sounds like those sweeping camera pans you get in movies when teenage kids are realizing what life is like for the first time. It needed to happen. Check it, yo.

Pitch perfect

Talk about coming out of left field! Most of us had no idea that the man behind 2004's epic Morrissey masterpiece You Are The Quarry (Alain Whyte) and Chicago's crown prince of alternative rock (Mat Devine) would team up to make an EP that is enticing than a Katy Perry video. One can only hope that this is the first salvo leading into a full length record. The music on this EP goes to some interesting places. The first track is a bit Angels and Airwaves-esque, but is pulled off masterfully well. Nobody Moves sounds like it could be on Our Lady Peace's 2002 record, Gravity and Mat's falsetto evokes the same falsetto that Rain Maida regularly employed in years past. This Means War is where this EP really shines, though. That song is loaded to the brim with delicious sonic details, all the way down to an outro that features acoustic strumming with a nice overlayer of electronic effects. Fallen Saints closes out the record nicely with a return to the stadium rock sound that opened the record, occasionally flirting with riffs that would make U2's The Edge proud. To put it succinctly: If you like rock music from the last 25 years, you should seriously consider picking up this record. If you're disappointed with the boatload of hooks, sonic depth, and moody lyrics then I'd genuinely have a hard time believing you have any taste at all. This is just that obviously good.


Perfectly crafted songs. Amazing hooks. Great intensity. This Means War is an anthem.
