It has finally arrived!
I have been waiting for this EP for what seems like an age and have had it on near constant repeat since the lads sent me over a pre-release copy.
I only have one word for you
As most of you will know I have featured THE SSS several times on the blog with single reviews and a review of their set at this year’s BLACKTHORN FESTIVAL which is where i finally got to see the band live. So you can probably guess I am a bit of a fan of the lads work and once you get to hear this STUNNING EP you will know why and hopefully you will become fans too.
The band are from Sheffield and at the moment Sheffield are producing some quality bands and musicians that are making big waves on the music scene, and THE SSS are one of those bands riding high on the crest of the Sheffield wave.
The band have picked up a string of awards since forming in 2013 notably
Exposed Magazine – Best Unsigned Band 2015
With the release of this EP the band will no doubly pick up more awards and gain some well deserved national airplay which will help the band reach that next level.
So what has LOVE – LUST – LOSS got hidden beneath its dark cd cover?
Well first of all this great picture of the band greets you.
The EP is 4 quality tracks
2. CALM BEFORE THE STORM
4. INTO THE SUN
You can check out the video to EIGHTEEN
And you can also check out my review of EIGHTEEN
So what of the other 3 new songs?
Well all 3 are some of the best work the lads have produced so far, I say so far as these lads just keep on making anthem after anthem, and each time they release a song they push their song writing and playing up a notch!
CALM BEFORE THE STORM is a beautifully crafted song that begins at a slow tempo but slowly builds and builds, lyrically and musically it is a stunning song.
PIRATI explodes into life from the first bar, it flows nicely along until the chorus kicks in, and when it kicks in it kicks in! This is one song that will have the crowd at gigs joining in, this is definitely the bands new anthem song!
Into The Sun is my personal favourite of the new songs on the EP, saying that all the tracks are amazing but this one just stands that little bit taller in the line for me. It has that full on Indie feel to it, from the drumming, the guitars and Josh’s vocals it has the feel of an early Artic Monkeys track…….BUT A WHOLE LOT BETTER!
The EP is released on all digital music sites from Monday 26/10/2015 and physical copies will be available from the band’s website from Sunday 25/10/2015.
All is left for me to say is BUY A COPY! You will not be disappointed.
These lads in the space of 2 years have produced some amazing music and they continue to push the boundaries of their music and song writing up another level with each song they release.
GET BEHIND THEM AND HELP THEM GET TO WHERE THEY DESERVE TO BE!
