Late to Chelsea - EP Review: LTC

17 Feb 2023 // A review by Chris Chick

When it comes to the soundtrack of anyone’s life, I am pretty sure the counter cultural sounds and motives of the punk movement would have influenced you at some time. Every generation needs its punk bands even if it's just the opportunity to not take yourself too seriously and enjoy the madness that is life and music.

As you can imagine Late to Chelsea bring a myriad of hard hitting and at points very grungy sounding songs to wonderment of my ears. There is no denying their sound certainly does not disappoint this reviewers receptacles. The opening tracks do not disappoint as they embrace the high tempo and mosh pit madness that will ensue.

HEY HEY HEY! is a good old traditional punk song which will have you shouting out the proverbial line on numerous occasions. Try not to be like this reviewer and do it in the middle of a packed area, for some reason some people just don't like the punk infused cries. Not My Friend, the third song on the EP brings a nice mix of punk and rock together that is very easy on the ear even if the song is fall of inward turmoil about life.

Permanent Stankface Disorder takes a subtle turn in its sound and direct mention of a well-known billionaire who has etched his name in infamy when it comes to Late to Chelsea. I like its hip-hop undertone sound and a very Arctic Monkeys sounding riff that plays through the song. It is very catchy and different to the rest of the EP and definitely not to its detriment, if anything to making the EP stand out more.

All in all this is a great little EP for you punk rockers out there who enjoy high octane counter cultural sounds. I very much look forward to this band bringing out more songs in the future and hope to be in one of their pits come gig day. Well done guys and keep up the good work.

Rating: ( 3 / 5 )

Corrella - Single Review: Skankin
09 Dec 2022 // by Chris Chick
Oh yes, the summer vibes are in town and Corrella is starting the skank off without delay. Is there any other type of music that reflects New Zealand during the summertime as the ska/reggae vibes that permeated from the West Indies.
EP Review: Bird Machine
24 Nov 2022 // by Chris Chick
Bird Machine are releasing their self-titled EP, the twosome brings a vibe of a New Zealand and Australian alt rock and dream pop to your ears. All these songs are remarkably performed, recorded, and produced from their home-based studio in the wonderful city of Hamilton.
The Black Seeds - Album Review: Love & Fire
15 Jul 2022 // by Chris Chick
What a privilege it is to review a legendary band that is The Black Seeds. The band has been entertaining and soothing the ears of many a listener now since 1998.
The Hootz - Single Review: Stay Away
06 May 2022 // by Chris Chick
Hailing from the Garden City and just a short 15-minute drive from yours truly, the 4-piece band known as The Hootz are releasing their upcoming single Stay Away. This song has a very melancholy vibe to it, but not in the sense of it being a negative thing, if anything it has a very Summer vibe feel to it.
Trip Change - Single Review: Never Seen A Boy Like Me
24 Jan 2022 // by Chris Chick
It is not hard to know that I am fan of all music, I think the ability to pick up a musical instrument and compose a song is impressive. The intricacies of bringing many parts together and making the final product sound so good is beyond my capabilities.
Kokomo - Album Review: A Little Something From The Attic
01 Jan 2022 // by Chris Chick
16 Blues songs to review was my mission if I chose to accept it, well naturally I did, otherwise you would not be reading this, but let me just tell you something, was I excited? Oh you can bet your bottom dollar I was.
Mini Simmons - Single Review: Railroad For Two
01 Nov 2021 // by Chris Chick
I had the privilege of listening to another cracking song by Mini Simmons. Their latest release Railroad For Two hit my ears and I am happy to say, my heart was warmed by such a melodic and poignant song that is perfect for any setting where peace and calm are the order of the day.
Oceanspace - Single Review: Silver City Rain
01 Sep 2021 // by Chris Chick
Now and again a song comes around that makes you stop and think "well that certainly surprised me". This is in no way a negative connotation, I would hate to think that my initial perspective was one of which, when I was given the task to review this song, I was already looking to the one-star rating.
