UK Pop Punkers, Catch Fire release their album this week through Rude Records, A Love That I Still Miss. The band who follow up from their debut, The Distance I Am From You continue to develop their sound on this record and this shows on first single Guilty As Charged which you can give a listen to here.
Packed with frantic energy powered by riffs, Catch Fire continue that on this record, but also there is more thought into the melodies here too with a better way with timing particularly on tracks such as Guilty As Charged where this band can speed and slow down the pace to perfection and this continues on tracks such as Thin Ice too, where the band keep that energy but you can tell they know what they’re doing with it.
Miles Kent has an incredible vocal that deliver these lyrics about heartbreak and moving on throughout this album with real emotion, Kent himself says this album is honest and heartfelt and this is made so clear throughout this album as the band with the melodies deliver these songs with emotion – its an album easy to relate to. Lyrically strong with some huge choruses throughout, this album live is going to work so well.
Catch Fire certainly do not have a sophomore slump, the band continuing to create some great tracks on this EP as they find their own sound, and if this is their direction, it is a really good one. The guitarists work so well on this record, creating boisterous melodies and the drumwork gives those a fantastic foundation and with a vocalist like Kent, this band works together incredibly well. Highlights for me are Sylvester, Guilty As Charged and Thin Ice, but if you’re into Pop Punk, you should listen to this album.
