About the EP:
Broadcast as a whole is a great representation of what LOTD has to offer.
Overall, it takes listeners on a journey through some pretty tough topics, told through the musical stylings of blues, rock and grunge with an overall flavour of early radio broadcasting and emergency transmissions.
After the H.G Wells style ‘Intro’, the first song is “The End (of all Things)”, a catchy blues rock number that tells a love story through the end of the world.
Next up is ‘Hold Tight’, a real rockin’ road song told from the perspective of someone hitting the road after dealing with the loss of a loved one, trying to come to terms with the situation and working through the grief.
After “Hold Tight”, things pick up with ‘Rise Up’ (this is their 1st single available now).
A little more upbeat, but still hitting hard topics of climate change and taking a stand. Backed by some acoustic melody, Rise Up dabbles through catchy rock licks and folk-like rhythm.
Next is “Better Times”, that the listener on a journey of loss and passing.
A laid-back minor blues number, it drones and pulls you along for the ride.
Lastly, closing off the EP is ‘Shrug it off’.
The heaviest song on the album, that tells a story of fighting through the challenges of online bullying, this grunge inspired tune pulls in some imaginative and creative sounds paired with a powerful rhythm track.
Very diverse in its sound but tied together by common themes and underlying influences.
