Dead Frequency – Tough Tracks And Setbacks EP [REVIEW]

Bringing something that blends pop punk with arena style rock and roll, Dead Frequency have released a four track EP that encompasses a lot that you love, but also some stuff that can really grind your gears about these genres.

The first two tracks feel more on the pop punk side of things with positively giddy sounding choruses and just a overall feeling of happiness exerting itself from the music. The former of the two, ‘Nobody’s Listening’ opens off with a normal backing style before throwing into the rest of the band. The vocals befit that of pop punk style, but Matti Fantasi’s vocals don’t feel as punchy or as catchy as the rest of the band do. That doesn’t seem to be the case throughout the entire record as you lead into another enjoyable track instrumental wise with ‘The Devils Dream’. Feeling like old school punk rock like Authority Zero or Bad Religion, this track uses simple chord progressions to its advantage and it pays off well.

Breaking into something straight out of a KISS record, ‘Time For Saying Sorry’ has a massive classic rock feel straight out of the opening guitar notes, but also has that soft flavour of Bowling For Soup with part of the riff structure that gets thrown around in the pre-choruses which is a pretty fun combination. Finally closing out with ‘Everything Will Be Alright’, the record epilogue gives off something that rounds up the entire EP solidly. Adding more to their sound with this track, it closes it just as it began.

This EP doesn’t throw anything special into your direction, nor does it try to break any boundaries of traditional classic rock/pop punk style, but what it manages to write and produce is something befitting of a veteran bands discography. Definitely a band to keep an eye out for in the future.
