‘Money Men’ is the follow-up to Kick Up The Fire‘s 2010 self-titled EP, and since then it appears that a few changes have been made. ‘Loaded’ opens up the EP with a nice use of subtle guitar effects and complimenting melodies, though at times it seems a little thinned out. The vocals also seem a bit empty compared to their first EP, losing any kind of post-hardcore/rock feel they had going before. I feel this is a shame as they run the risk of turning into ‘just another indie band’. The track moves along at some pace, but with no real changes it becomes slightly predictable. It’s a pleasant listen, but that’s as far as it goes.
