EP Review - Boundary - If Looks Could Kill

Simply listening to 'If Looks Could Kill' from Coventry pop punks, Boundary doesn't really do it the justice it deserves. To get the full effect, you have to see these guys live on stage. Luckily, this can be done, next Tuesday, (June 4th) at The Roadhouse in Brum. Their live presence gives their catchy riffs and cool guitar solo's a whole new dimension. That being said, 'If Looks Could Kill' is a great EP from JJ (lead vocals), and the guys.

The EP starts with the title track 'If Looks Could Kill', and it's a cracker. It's one of those annoyingly infectious tracks you can't help but bounce your head and tap your feet to. In fact, If I wasn't writing this while listening to it, I'd be bouncing around my living room, lol!! It takes influence from the likes of Blink 182 and other American punk bands, but thankfully without the american accent, (nothing wrong with the accent, but the English accent gives it that something else). JJ gives a great vocal performance, and there's some great riffs and guitars throughout. 'Redemption' starts life with a nice piano solo, but before too long it's into the crashing drums, catchy riffs, and punky vocals. There's a neat little bridge midway through with just JJ and piano which then returns back to it's punky home with a cool guitar solo from lead guitarist Nick. There's a great feel to 'Beautiful Disaster', you can't help but feel that on home turf, with a room full of fans, it woulde just be a room full of bouncing bodies throughout. Another great guitar solo mid way through, which seperates Boundary from a lot of other pop punk bands and it's a great extra string to their bow.

It's a great EP, and a very polished 2nd piece of work from a band who have been together a litle over 18 months. If you get a chance to see these guys do their thing live, take that opportunity!!
