Ten to five years ago this Finnish band was slightly more active releasing two awesome post-rock albums. They really had their place in the Finnish underground music scene having something distinctive. With the latest album, the band has changed their style to slightly lighter, more hopeful and easier to approach. All three tracks are very good, but then the last two albums were so good that it is pretty hard to battle with those especially with the new style. The EP somehow resonates with the sound of the early 00's indie music style and sound.
There are many nice guitar hooks in all tracks. I think all three tracks could have a bit noisier or bigger sound at some points, it could suit the tracks. But anyways all three tracks are quite catchy and can stick to your head well. Interesting to see if the band is raised from the dead now with this EP.
