SIBLING – ‘Miserable Love’ EP Review

SIBLING –  Miserable Love

siblingHaling from the Berkshire, England towns of Windsor and Maidenhead, Sibling’s three band members make an infectious noise that is fully demonstrated on their new four song EP Miserable Love.

The songs deal with relationships and breaking up with some self-loathing thrown in for good measure. The EP opens with Silver, a power pop with a great hook and a Jimmy Eats World feel. Next up is Circles and begins with some swirling keyboards and casually strummed guitar before it launches into an energetic four minute package of layered vocals, changes in pace and creates enough space to draw you in to experience the well constructed pop song.

The title song on the EP, Miserable Love is a well-titled track with a longing, pained vocal and slow build of guitars over a slow beat. It’s another song that explores different sounds over four and a half minutes. There’s a Morrissey vibe to the lyrics and the delivery but the music builds and builds in a math-punk way – very precise and intricate. It was my favorite track on the EP.

The final song in this release is Sick Of Me and it is, in many ways, a blend of the earlier styles with a super chorus that powers along driven by the tight and strong rhythm section and some great guitar work. Sibling have hinted that they may well add more band members in the future albeit this is a robust release and, in my humble opinion benefits from the interplay of the three members.
