Stolen Wings is the brainchild of Scottish musician Mark Fraser, who has been involved in a number of endeavours over the years, most notably as frontman of False Hopes, but after a long time of deliberation and plucking up the courage, he’s decided to go solo and give us an EP titled All Roads Lead Here.
Shallow Heart is a welcoming starter, being quick to show off some very fine writing; even more so with In Our Youth, where the distorted riffs add an extra layer and fit well with the tone of the song.
End Of You may just be the highlight, as Mark exhibits such sheer powerful emotion through his vocals, and all those elements are forged and displayed in the last number Infinite Regress.
I’m thoroughly impressed with Mark’s work here. All Roads Lead Here is a fiercely engaging EP that just has you hooked from beginning to end with it’s candid sincerity. Mark has proven he can do it on it’s own, and I think he’s capable of even more.
