This is more like it - Lace Weeper rock.
Whilst the rabble rousing first track is a fist clenching, adrenaline bound number that at times could be a manic Manics due to singer Sebastian Florek's tone, the second song, 'Sunbleached', is where this band starts to be more than just another Brit band doing the usual bland rehash of the same song over and over. They tip their hats to AIC and the melodic hypnotic vibes that flow forth are groove laden and, although so different to the opening track, you can tell it's the Dublin four piece - just on a different trip and for a change, it's not just a carbon copy Seattle sound they create (the band actually recorded a song with Kevin Wood of Malfunkshun in tribute to Wood's Mother Love Bone frontman brother).
'Escape' and 'Swing' are more of the same rhythmic yet heavy sounding songs that you'll be impressed with and just when I'm thinking "don't ruin it", they cover The Beatles' 'Come Together' and, guess what? They fucking rock the shit out of it, and when you've heard loads of bands make feeble attempts at that song, you'll realise it's not actually a bad choice to include it.
