Leeds’ own Brawlers are back with an epic slice of fried gold in the form of a bite-sized, five-track EP. Following on from their stellar debut album, ‘Romantic Errors Of Our Youth’, the pop-rock quartet have continued their with their awesome streak of upbeat and urgent music, and they’ve only gone and bloody built upon it, haven’t they?!
Like pouring a Jägerbomb in your ear, this gets straight to the point and will have you running around the room, flailing your arms like a rabid monkey on fire. From the blistering ‘Day Job’ to the sobering yet frivolous ‘Better Looking’, there is no lull. NO LULL! With a dash of refreshing, frank and honest lyrics here, a pinch of indie quirks there, and a literal fuck-tonne of organic, invigorating DIY punk, their sound is, simply put, fucking delicious.
Brawlers are leaping straight out of the underground and kicking the mainstream square in the teeth (which it quite frankly needs at the moment, else we have the likes of Drake in the charts for weeks and weeks). ‘The Black EP’ is a top-down, tops-off, summery collection of anthems that’s perfect for festivals, and just as catchy as the STIs that are lurking in the camp sites.
It’s impossible to not like this EP, not sing along, and not instantly crank up the volume as soon as the first chorus graces your speakers.
