Hullore returns with EP2, showcasing a remarkable evolution since their debut with Hello. EP2 is a triumph, boasting a full-bodied track list that brims with energy and infectious hooks. The song hit hard with undeniable rhythm section and exceptional guitar work.
The opening track, "Pie In the Sky," kicks off with a solo guitar, soon enveloped by distortion, drums and bass. Its killer groove, infused with syncopated energy reminiscent of Queens of The Stone Age, sets the tone. The vocals, smooth and almost Beatles-esque, seamlessly intertwine with impeccable drum and guitar work. The snare cuts through like a machine gun, while the warm distortion of the guitars remains inviting, avoiding unnecessary harshness.
"Breathe" accelerates the BPM, delivering incredible drum work and exuding a ‘90s punk energy akin to bands like NOFX. Clocking in at just under three minutes, it's a relentless, adrenaline-pumping experience without a single ounce of excess. It felt like a great song to get the energy even more intense after the opener.
With "Garden of Faith," Black Sabbath echoes emerge, as the ‘70s classic rock riffs create an ascending journey. The vocalist's proclamation, "Give all your love to one who lives above," adds a nasty yet enticing darkness to the track. My favorite of the four, "Sun Meets Earth," is just all around great tune. Channeling classic rock vibes, especially reminiscent of Black Sabbath, it cleverly blends with a contemporary indie flavor.
In an era where sounds are often rigidly quantized, this EP is a breath of fresh air, offering a dynamic and invigorating musical experience. Highly recommended!
