Brandon Steep - The Woodland Regiment
The Hereford, England five piece return with their 2nd EP of indie pop-rock that may be a bit on the slight side, but is nevertheless and fun and breezy way to spend the time it takes to here 5 silly love songs. The more spunky tracks like "Hills and Trees" and "Quintessential" off-set the false-starts of the title track, a lame ballad, and "Hiding in the Undergrowth," which seems afraid of its own potential to rock, so it doesn’t.
There are a lot of hooks here that could be a blueprint for a larger more full sound. They’re young, and, being British, probably already being hyped beyond what is good for them at this stage. Their upcoming full-length will them space to see just what will work, and what ought to be left to other bands in love with fey ‘60’s pop.
