White Noise Radio – ‘Cosmos’ EP Review

White Noise Radio – Cosmos

white-noise-radioBristol based alternative rock quartet White Noise Radio released their new EP Cosmos on July 1st 2017. This release is jam packed full of rollercoaster riffs and huge choruses for fans of Incubus and Karnivool.

“This EP is evocative and emotional with the trademark White Noise Radio ‘clever heaviness’ that we like to make and we can’t wait to share it with you all!” – Ben Lampard, White Noise Radio vocalist.

Opening with a muted guitar riff and some intricate drums Sirens builds into a monster riff driven track that crawls its way into your brain as the vocals are melodic and help the track build up, break down and build up again. The overall feel is more metal than punk…the band cite Incubus as an influence and I would agree that they are in that mold.

Gone Inside is the second song on the four-track EP clocking in over five minutes in length with some serious bass/guitar/drum rhythm creating a stoner rock vibe interspersed with heavy sections.

On the third track, Dawning, White Noise Radio open with a melodic guitar lick and a slower paced song. The track takes its time to build to an intricate and very heavy section that sees it through all the way to end…it is epic in scope and delivery.

The final song offering on Cosmos is Wires, which again opens with a melodic guitar and slower drum pace and the melodious vocals lead into an anthem-style chorus.
