The Vamps - Missing You | EP Review

 


 The Vamps have released their new EP titled 'Missing You' which features 4 songs:

1. Missing You
2. Right Now (ft. Krept & Konan)
3. Waves
4. All The Lies (Acoustic)

The EP follows their usual sound which is very much pop but with drums and acoustic guitar in some parts of the song - their sound has really developed over the years and the sound works really well for them. They are a very talented group but I don't seem to hear much from them. I know they release music quite regularly but I don't hear them in the charts as much as I used too which really surprises me.

The title track of this EP 'Missing You' starts off slow with what sounds like a soft piano playing in the background. The vocals from Brad Simpson (the lead vocalist) creep in. The vocals through out the sounds are raspy but so smooth. The chorus has a little bit of a beat but the whole songs stays quite slow and ballad-like. I don't seem to connect with slower, ballad-like songs so 'Missing You' isn't my favourite song from the EP but it isn't a bad song.

'Right Now' is more of an acoustic song during the intro but slowly brings are more upbeat sound to the song. Krept & Konan feature on this and I really like them on this track. They add something new that we don't usually hear from The Vamps. Obviously, no one in The Vamps are rappers but I really like this feature. One of my favourite songs from the EP.

'Waves' is certainly my favourite song from the album. It has such a jolly feelings to it. I really love The Vamps' upbeat songs. Throughout the song, it does give Caribbean, sea vibes. It has a jolly tune that really resonates to the sea. I love the lyrics and the vocals throughout the song.

The last song on the EP, 'All The Lies (Acoustic)' is also quite good. I have said several times in the past; I can't connect with acoustic songs too much but I do like the lyrics, the tune and the acoustic jives it gives off. This isn't like the usual acoustic songs I usually hear, it sounds a little more upbeat which I like.

The vocals throughout this EP are really good, I can't fault them, they are super talented and this is a really good EP!

Overall Rating:

★★★★☆

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all. Listen to the song: Prodigal HQ · When We Bleed
