DIAL DRIVE – ‘Viva Le’Jit’ EP Review

DIAL DRIVE – Viva Le’Jit

Dial DriveDial Drive was started in late 2016 and they began to play constantly throughout the state of Florida. Early in 2017 Dial Drive released their first EP, Never Go Home which was well received.

Their second EP, Viva Le’Jit has just been released and the five tracks begin with a fast “1,2,3,4…” launching a melodic and super fast, Throw Up that is bound to be a skate shredding pleaser with dual lead vocals and some chunky segments meeting the full on sections.

Big Mistake is technical in rhythm with churning sections and soaring choruses dripping with melody whilst Worthless has a more serious tone with vocals sung/spoken and bass guitar prominent – this one has emo-connections and packs one almighty punch.

The second to last song, November 8th explodes out of the gates with a manically fast drumbeat, hooks to the gut and no shortage of melody but, oh those drums!

Closing with Medicated Dial Drive show us another side of their personality with a reggae beat and some rapping verses that help the song build to some monster guitar solos and emerge from the reggae to an Offspring style conclusion – good stuff!
