FLATLINE STEREO – ‘Bright Eyes’ EP Review


Flatline StereoFlatline Stereo release their latest EP Bright Eyes on Monday 2 October.

Opening with a raw yet polished rocker called Don’t Get Me Wrong, the band display some serious pop-punk sensibilities with a melody attack on top of some dirty chords. They continue with the Green Day like, Hurricane with serrated guitars, easy on the ear vocals and a pounding rhythm section and a bass driven break to add some intrigue to a strong song.

Half-way through is It Must Be You with a prominent lick from the introduction that holds the song together throughout. The band have a knack for a hook and a melody and the ballad beginning of Little Sister builds to a Weezer like chorus replete with the “oooh weee oooh” backing vocals and the riffs just pile on top of each other juxtaposing with the acoustic guitar verses. Great stuff!

The EP closes with We Were Young with it’s Stiff Little Fingers meets The Skids opening lick that develops into a raucous and melodic pleaser. Flatline Stereo are bloody good, easy on the ear yet full of foot-stomping power – a very good EP indeed.
