Green Like Go - self titled EP review
23 Feb 2010 // A review by Bela
Before you even hear the music, the EP for Green Like Go visually stands out. The recycled cardboard sleeve is distinctive, and the cover art is quirky.
The first track 'Fat Man' I could envision being a much requested fan favourite. It is catchy and distinctive with solid beats.
The second track 'You Came Around' sounds like it belongs on a soundtrack for a New Zealand TV show. Outrageous Fortune and Go Girls both spring to mind. The song is fun, light hearted and melodic. It makes me think of a Kiwi summer.
Thirdly we have 'The Other Way' which has a Brit Pop sound, it reminds me of Supergrass with the melody and the catchy lyrics.
Last song on the EP is called 'To Me Now' which is energetic and a different vibe from the previous 2 songs. The song is more driving and forceful, and when it ended left me with a real sense of wanting more.
Overall, the group is definitely one to be watching. I think if they get a chance to break into the mainstream, that the rest of New Zealand will embrace them just like their home town of Christchurch.
