EP Review - REVA - Nothing Changes Here
There's an awful lot of great bands coming out of the North West at the moment. Mutineers, The Universal, and The Sherlocks are just a few bands making a name for themselves, and also bringing the North West back into musical prominance!
The latest of this crop of bands is a bunch of likely lads from Liverpool, REVA. Another fab four piece from Merseyside. 'Nothing Changes Here' is there first EP, and if its a sign of things to come, then bring it on!! the four tracks are all crackers, easy comparisons can be made to Britpop bands of the nineties, but the truth is, they have a pretty unique sound. Catchy choruses, great guitars, and great songwriting.
We kick off with Flying. A soaring, almost anthemic start to the EP, with a great chorus, Oasis-like guitars, its a brilliant first track and it leads straight into the 2nd and slightly catchier Northwest Skies. With another supremely catchy guitar track, and chorus, its impossible to resist the fot tapping urge that takes over you. I'm gonna confess, that track 3 is my favourite. Enough is Enough, is a great song!! Great lyrics, great guitars, catchier than catchy chorus, it's an absolute stormer, as is the final track Revolution.
The whole EP is a great piece of work, 4 great tracks, from for great lads from a great musical city, who's heritage is there for all to hear.
If you've not listened to REVA before, have a listen to the EP below, and then head over to iTunes and spend some pennies on it!! You know it makes sense.
