REVIEW | Picture Frames: Playground

Recently emerging from Newcastle, alternative rock band Picture Frames sought to make a statement with their debut EP, Playground, and they’ve done a pretty good job in doing just that.

The Waiting Room is a decent opening number, although I have to admit it does lack an oomph. But things properly pick up with Reverie which features enjoyable guitar work and a neat melody, followed by the catchy title track which is highlighted by a bouncy rhythm and a lot of energy behind it.

On the whole, a solid first effort from the band that is certainly worth checking out. The production could do with a touch of tinkering in the future, in order to allow their already good music to truly pop out and unravel the great potential they clearly hold.
