Elasea are set to self release their new EP this week, Lesson Learnt. A band that have so much potential, this is made clear by their recent video for Breathe, this band certainly have the vocals and the talent to do great things if this track is anything to go by.
A band with a fine way with melodies that remind you of bands such as Don Broco and You Me At Six, Elasea open their EP with Breathe with twists of synth and bass riffs that work together incredibly well and this is a theme that runs through the record. This combined with the foundation of drums adds to this too, creating some great rhythms on tracks on Time Stops and Walls, which raise the energy level on this record.
The partnership of female and male vocals from Jones and Bradford does sound good on this record throughout, tracks such as Breathe are examples of this done incredibly well, with the melodious vocals of Jones entwining with the raw male vocals to deliver a huge chorus. Those raw vocals are made further clearer on tracks such as On My Own, with some hints of screaming that work here.
Elasea make it clear what they can do on their new record and what they do is huge rock tracks that live need to be heard, this band creating an EP designed get a crowd started with ease. Highlights for me are Breathe and Walls, where those vocals are on show and those musicians really creating something great.
