The EP, entitled Say What You Need To Say, opens with a killer song in “Friends and Foes.” It starts off welcoming, then the energy just smacks you in the face. The chords and the drumming are so well put together with the lyrics. The single itself is so likable that it is hard to not dance to.
The first single off the EP “Pick Your Poison,” is arguably the catchiest song on the album. When the chorus kicks in, there is nothing you want to do more than just belt out the notes with the lyricist. The more you listen to the song, the more you love it.
The last song “The Better Or The Best You Remember,” is a slow, soft song that really closes the album off well. The band didn’t struggle at all with this sort of song. After four songs off in your face pop-punk, this song is a nice way to say, “we’re not all about partying.”
This EP for The Greater Risk is going to draw crowds of all kinds at shows. They head out on tour in a few weeks. If you see there name anywhere on a playbill, go and check them out; you won’t regret it.
