Release Date: 9th of February, 2018
TL;DR: An overall solid release. Great instrumentals and solid vocal performances.
‘You Won’t Come Home‘ is the latest release from Melbourne band Stuck Out and first with local label Greyscale Records.
With seventeen minutes filled with emotion and energy, the band has really established their own sound. Stitch, the opener, gives a strong impression on what to expect from the rest of their songs. The two singles (Fade Away and Self Doubt) are staple performances and serve as highlights for the EP; displaying brilliant vocal performances and wonderful song progressions.
The middle of the EP provides a nice shift in sound without being overly dramatic – just enough for you to notice the progression. Weight was such a nice, short track that used all of its time to convey everything it needed to.
Linger, the longest and final track of the record, is a constant play with momentum. The energy builds slowly just to be pulled out from under you, only to build back up again. The emotion is captured perfectly and serves as a nice conclusion for the project.
Overall, the EP provides a great first impression. There is a lot of great material packed into absolutely every song. I really look forward to seeing where Stuck Out moves from here.
