As of recent, we discovered London band Small Pond Big Fish and were very quick to jump on the bandwagon after being hooked onto their latest release – Close My Eyes.
Each number brings a much welcomed heavier element to the traditional pop punk genre; a huge sound which is just bursting through our headphones. On top of that, the energy levels are absolutely off the charts and they leave us breathless by the end of the adrenaline rush.
One minor nitpick is that half of the record consists of interludes, which unfortunately makes for a constant pace-breaker that cuts down the momentum somewhat.
But again, it is only a minimal aspect that does little to take away from what is ultimately a breathtaking, exhilarating EP.
