HereToFore Drops A Heartfelt Folk-Rock EP
HereToFore has returned with their awaited EP oozing with outstanding folk-rock sounds that give that live performance feel and classic rock style all the way through to the end.
The songs on this record sound like anthems you heard somewhere before.
They are familiar and have a great energy to them that sticks with you long after the songs have ended.
The full EP has some surprises around the corner but you can always rely on that classic rock aesthetic to shine through and grab hold of you.
The songs are infectious and that guitar tone becomes your friend enough to get excited about it when the next track rolls in.
There is also such a variety of textures and hooks throughout the record that hit in just the right way that you find yourself replaying parts in your head later in the day.
This EP feels like walking into a hole in the wall bar and finding an amazing band playing there. You're pleasantly surprised and the warmth you get from the songs is impactful enough to change your mood at any given time.
The release isn't without it's harder rocking sections when guitars have more drive and drums slam a little harder but that blues folk undertone is always incredibly present.
There is plenty of power and presence to go along with the songwriting on this one and you won't be able to get around that live on stage sound these guys portrayed on record so well.
They all feed off of each other so well it's actually part of what makes it so addictive to begin with.
There is that southern charm and sound that keeps up throughout the record as well. It's like Neil Young meets Tom Waits, meets Nick Cave meets The Rolling Stones and more.
Songs are cinematic and fill you with emotion at times and that's something you don't always get in music.
The EP is dubbed East Of It All and it's well worth your time and playlists to say the least.
