British rock five piece, Brightlight City are releasing their latest EP, Our Future's Not Dead, this April and it is as bright as the lights in their hypothetical city! Between playing tours and sharing stages with bands like Rise Against, the band have put together a four track EP that certainly shows their talents.

At just under a quarter of an hour long and consisting of four tracks, this EP is the very definition of short and sweet. The EP opens with It Depends On You, an opener as big as they come. Spoken intro leads into crashing guitars and huge chanting vocals. The pattern continues with sedate verses leading into big, dramatic choruses draped with impeccable vocal work. The yearning feelng of the backing vocals before the second chorus is a particularly great moment before the breakdown kicks in. The breakdown section combines heavy chugging with almost pop punk riffs which makes it a welcome addition to the song. Track two, Leave a Light On, starts out somewhat softer, a good idea when trying to follow such an opener. More great interaction between lead and backing vocals can be found on this track all the way up to the chorus where the track really kicks in with great guitar work over a stomping rhythm section. The band's use of gang vocals goes to great effect throughout the back end of the track.
