EP Review; The Juveniles – You Won’t Control Us
The Juveniles are a 5 piece band formed in Liverpool, England, UK. Due to the success of their debut single ‘Help Me Out’. The Juveniles are now excited about releasing their debut EP “You Won’t Control Us” . This will be backed up with a string of live shows and a mini UK tour.
“Help Me Out” is the first track that opens up the E.P. Opening with the rhythmic bass line from Marc Gibbs this is a great opening track crying and almost begging out for help, and the guitar throughout leading the track through its long and winding pleas until it explodes in your face and sends you out on a high.
2nd up is “The Beat of a Drum” , Mike Davies’ vocals penetrating the silence of the drum beat with slick effectiveness and once the track kicks in more of the angst comes through in his performance. The song relays that constant cycle of regret you feel and the guitar by Liam Devall is exquisite.
“Seen The Light” reminds me of a Doors track, that hypnotic, winding, psychedelic sound flows through the track taking you into a world of dreams and haze. The words I’ve seen the like playing like a mantra in your mind even after the track has finished.
“You Won’t Control Us” is the final track on the E.P. Starting off slow it eventually builds into a glorious ballad with an incessant drum beat. Glorious and solemn at the same time but also gives you the feeling of release and escape.. Something which isn’t achieved very often by a lot of bands.
The production of ‘The Juveniles’ debut EP is crystal. It takes a lot of influences from various musical genres and manages to bend it into something more modern and unique and Mike Davies vocals compliment each track in every way possible.
