The Flex - Your Eyes - EP Review

The Flex first came to my attention towards the end of last year, with their debut release, 'Our Time Is Now', a fantastic, uplifting, almost anthemic blockbuster of an indie rock track. When I first heard it I thought 'these guys are gonna be huge!!' And with the release of their debut EP 'Your Eyes'.

What 'Your Eyes' gives you, is 3 more examples of what a class act the 4 piece, from the south west, are. The opening track 'Daisy' is a fab way to start things off with a neat little bassline leading the way, interspersed with some great guitar riffs. 'Your Eyes' has a much smoother vibe to it, the are hints of The Jam/Style Council throughout, but not enough for it not to sound like something original, and bloody good!! The vocals are a great mix of smooth, but also some powerful angst at times. Final track 'City Life', has Paul Weller stamped all over it, but again, given the vocal being a much smoother, richer tone than The Modfather, it gives the track a life of it's own.

It's a fantasticaly crafted EP. Great songs, lyrics, arrangements, whcih if I'm honest, I fully expected. If you like your indie/mod rock, then this is the band for you. They have talent in spades, let's hope it's not too long before there's a long player on the horizon from them!!

The Flex are:
Giles Refoy
Tom Flatman
Chris Mellor
Sam Gerard
