This week sees the release of In The Mourning, from up and coming Alt/Grunge band from Leeds, Weekend Recovery. recently supporting bands such as INK, Svetlanas and The Kut, this is a band building in experience and sound and doing it brilliantly, recently just missing out on the chance to play Download.
A band that slam in huge riffs from the moment the EP begins, Weekend Recovery melodically are making something incredible. The guitars add a bouncey energy to tracks such as ‘Bite Your Tongue’ and ‘In The Mourning’ that live are going to make this EP such a triumph. These melodies combined with the powerful vocals is a hell of a listen.
Lorin on vocals is a powerhouse. Highlighting her impressive power throughout this EP, with raw vocals and powerful notes, the band back her up in every moment. This particularly shows on tracks such as ‘In The Mourning’ certainly, but also on tracks such as ‘On My Knees’ where she belts out the huge chorus and creates infectious moments that just make you want to press repeat.
A band just getting started, Weekend Recovery give us something great on their new EP. Huge guitars, drums that bring it in every moment and a vocalist that harmonises incredibly well with what the band create, this is an exciting prospect. Highlights for me on this record, ‘On My Knees’ and ‘In The Mourning’.
