Southampton bred CrestFallen (not be confused with the Virginia-based punk rock band of the same name) are taking their first real steps into the music industry world with their debut EP ‘Cities On The Edge Of Forever’. Already the band are facing some difficulties and complication, with guitarist Woody leaving soon after the EP’s release for educational commitments. This isn’t the be all and end all already though, and with a debut like this CrestFallen have plenty to look forward to.
The speech leading opener ‘The Truth Will Set You Free’ about religion, institutions and lies plunges is in appropriately into the first real song ‘Disclosure’. Though the transition from opener to track could’ve been done much better, ‘Disclosure’ starts off like a heavy weight hitting your chest sending you back into a city on the edge of forever that the band have built, bludgeoning until the final minute where harmonies flip you into another sense of reality.
