With their latest EP, Paradise Place, released on 3rd March, We Came From Wolves have completed two UK tours and supported So I Watch You From Afar in a relatively short space of time. Listening to the four tracks on their new EP, it’s not hard to see why the band is going from strength to strength.
The very first thing that strikes me about this EP is the Scottish vocals. As is the case with Biffy Clyro lead singer Simon Neil, the distinctive accent immediately makes the vocals sound different and intriguing. The EP reminds me of more mainstream rock bands such as Kids in Glass Houses but shows a healthy dose of individuality, which is an unexpected twist. The melodies are catchy, as are the lyrics, and it seems as if this could be a big hit with younger listeners due to the energy and relatable lyrics. There’s something endearing about the EP, which makes you want to keep listening to the upbeat rock hooks and feel good vibes.
All three of We Came From Wolves’ previous singles gained airplay on BBC Radio 1, which is not surprising when a band are this refreshing. The second song on the EP, A Bastard Son, A Brother To No One, is the catchiest single, with the chorus staying in your head long after you’ve finished listening to it. To give off such energy and exuberance in just four songs is quite the accomplishment, it’s just a shame that four songs is all there is. I love it and would encourage anyone who loves an upbeat, rock-filled album to give it a try!
