Indie/alternative group, The Weekend Classic (this time the word “weekend” actually being spelt properly), have released their newest EP titled Better Health.
It starts out with Detached, a slow, chimerical track with a beautiful guitar intro at the beginning and echo-ey vocals across the rest of the song. Indie music is perfect for moods where you want to lie back and relax to slow music, and this track doesn’t fail to deliver on that.
However, the mood from slow and dreamy-like changes to a much faster and upbeat track, Mutal Interest. The acoustic guitars are replaced by electric, and the vocals are much more clearer than before. The first thing that came to mind when listening to this was Four Year Strong, but obviously whether they’re inspired by that band or not is unclear. Regardless, it’s a good listen.
Cute Me Off is another good listen. It’s a relatable track, seemingly about imperfections and trying to make progress in life, in the verses at least.
Bleed makes the sudden jump from a slow guitar introduction to acceleration, jumping straight into the first verse of the track. The track in general is rather angsty and depressing with its lyrics (e.g. “I still struggle every day just to maintain the life that I hate”), but we all feel like that from time to time and this is another track that delivers well to that feeling.
Better Health was released in April, so if you’re looking for brand new music to discover (particularly alternative), give this one a listen, as you may enjoy it very much.
