SORRY FOR ESCALATING – ‘Losing Sleep’ EP Review


Sorry for EscalatingSorry For Escalating are a four-piece band from Karlsruhe, Germany.  Losing Sleep is their second EP and will be released on June 1st 2018, on Horn and Hoof Records.

The mellow guitars softly strummed on the opening to See You In The Spring are quickly replaced with a monster riff and emo tinged vocal. The track is packed with hooks laid over a mid-paced rocker.

Open And Empty nudges up the pace a little but maintains the melodic approach with some nifty guitar licks and is followed by the powerful Thinking Twice. Sorry For Escalating tap into a little Husker Du albeit with an emo/alternative underpinning. The songs are tight, drip with melody and pack a punch.

The EP closes with Without You and the track has a power ballad feel backed by some strong rhythm work and neat guitar segments all leading to a powerhouse of a chorus.

This release is an exclusive to Horn & Hoof Records and there will be a VERY limited run.
