This follow up to last years 'Forty', left me asking one question. How long will we have to wait for a full album from these guys!!?
This is another belting EP that leaves you wanting more, and more, and more. It's a fantastic mix of heavy guitars, great vocals, and brilliantly produced tracks. The title track bursts into your ears as soon as you hit the play button. It doesn't have the pace of 'Forty' from their previous release, but that doesn't deter from the fact that these guys certainly know how to rock!! Raygun is a great start, and a more than worthy first single.
The first thing you notice about the Raygun EP, is that it's instantly recogniseable as High/Low. they haven't taken the winning formula from 'Forty' and tried to change it in any way whatsoever. Which, to me, is a great thing. If you listened to, and enjoyed 'Forty', then you're going to love 'Raygun, and thats no exageration. From the opening of the title track, through the in your face, Foo Fighter/Nirvana-esque 'Beef Back', via 'Boulder Hill', the pounding percussion of 'Walk Away', which you can't help but nod your head to, then 'Soda' and 'Tapedeck', what you have here is a collection of 6 brilliantly written, produced, and performed indie/rock songs. This should take pride of place in any music fans collection. Steve and Lee prove that 2 people really do make beautiful music together.
