An explosive introduction to a brand new rock EP loaded with hits, Michael Fordays blends poetry and pace, for Slowly Now.
The opening track from the 2023 EP The Mind And Echoes, Slowly Now proves quickly immersive for its multi-layered rock and power-chord sound, before connecting with all the more depth as our leading protagonist delves into a thoughtful realm of imagery and emotion.
Brilliantly likable, uplifting and energizing from the moment it starts to play, Slowly Now also walks a skillful line between familiar and fresh. The voice and this melodic balance of melancholy and optimism feels authentically new, whereas the overall distorted indie rock set-up and these warped solos offer a hint of nostalgia; which is comforting amidst the current popular landscape.
The Mind and Echoes is a brilliant EP in full, packed with fast-riffs and the live crash of drums, guided by an expressive and thoughtful front-man – one whom would no doubt engage and captivate at live shows.
