Album Review — Solids: ‘Else’ EP

(Yoshi Cooper | provided)

Tomorrow, Solids will be releasing their new EP Else. Last week, I featured their track “Wait It Out”, and after listening to the whole album, I think it’s one of my favorite songs on the 4-track EP. To put it simply, Else is an EP that’ll immediately bring you back to your young teen angst years. I hear a lot of elements in their songs that are reminiscent of 90s grunge rock – heavy reverb on the guitars, steady percussions, and slightly muted vocals. 

Besides “Wait It Out”, I’d recommend “Blurs” as well because of the drums are sick.
