As far as the future of British music goes, As Sirens Fall from Keighley, Yorkshire are right up there at the top of the ranks. The quintet first made a major splash back in 2016 with their debut EP, The Hospital Party, which earned them tonnes of praise from fans and press alike, and deservedly so.
Since then, they have only improved and continued to build into one of England’s tightest up and coming acts. And now, after two years of anticipation, the boys are ready to elevate themselves to a whole new level with their sophomore record – Where Lost Things Go.
They waste no time and start off strong with their latest single Lily, exhuming fierce amounts of energy, and at the core of it is a fiery performance from Mikey Lord. They keep it going with In My Mind, highlighted by a catchy and dynamic chorus, and they enlist the help of Skindred’s Benji Webbe to add an extra beefy layer to what is an already loaded song.
Like Vultures excels with its writing, followed by the low-key Getaway which is very heartfelt, dotted with tepid chords and a calm beat, all elevating towards a palatial second half.
They return to familiar territory in My Only Ghost, dishing out snappy riffs and charging forth with a driving rhythm, before going all in for an impassioned climax in the form of She Run With The Wolves.
As Sirens Fall had a tough task placed in front of them, having to better their efforts of The Hospital Party, but oh boy, did they ever. Where Lost Things Go is nothing short of sensational, with the entire band putting in everything and using their talents to their full potential, giving us an EP that makes an impact upon every listen with its frontal excitement and deeper underlying emotions.
As Sirens Fall are ready for the big leagues.
“WHERE LOST THINGS GO” IS AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY 13TH APRIL
