Reviewed: Inside View – Underneath the Stars (EP)

16 Apr

insertfront1Hailing from Wigan in the UK, Inside View are a band that are not afraid to be a little different. Their second EP ‘Underneath the Stars’ mixes indie rock with tunes that are unabashedly poppy to create a work that is varied, emotive and very memorable.

The whole EP is heavily laden with rich, close vocal harmonies, simple yet solid guitar work, varied, textured songs and has an emotional side that they’re not ashamed to show. ‘Underneath the Stars’ takes you from rock, to happy dancy pop, through a love song that’s just the right side of cheesy and ends on an heartfelt yet upbeat tune with a chorus that will stay in your head for hours.

From within a scene of serious indie rockers, Inside View are going against the grain and are making music that’s a bit emotional, a bit soulful and quite a bit poppy, but they balance it out with great song-craft, catchy hooks and some good solid rock. It’s refreshing, different, admirable and so damn catchy that you’ll have no choice but to like it!
