The EP blasts open with the lively and rocking title track. There is a heap of energy as the band thrash out with a heap of oomph having a lot of fun in the process. So funkn restless is a gritty garage rock tune! The band pour a heap of energy into the track led by some heavy grungy guitars. Sure baby is the ballad of the EP. Sounding somewhere between David Bowie and the Beatles, the track slides along in a smooth fashion courtesy of some mellow vocals and a chilled out soundtrack. Suburban Song is catchy indie rock tune. There’s a great vintage garage feel here with the sound being slightly rough and raw round the edges. At the same time the tunes are infectiously catchy giving it a great upbeat poppy vibe! The EP closes with the racing high energy Blind Fred E ensuring the release finishes with as big a blast as it began.
