Glasgow rock duo Taped Live burst onto the scene last summer with their debut record Seven Sounds, and it wouldn’t be long before Leo and Sal were eager to have another go. Fast forward a few months later, and we have their second release – Take My Picture.
They kick off with the record’s namesake, a nice little jumping number with good guitars and a bucking chorus on hand. Crumble is laden with some cool distorted riffs, after which they return to animated form with the pretty catchy Think It’s Funny?
Half the length of its predecessor, but nonetheless this EP is just as worth it. Straightforward and not much in terms of risk-taking, but regardless, it doesn’t fail to entertain in its short time frame.
For 2018 and beyond, the pair will have to step up their game if they want to climb up the ladder and to the big leagues. The potential is there, it’s just a case of developing it.
