Bristol’s alternative trio Blank Atlas released their hard-hitting second EP Canvas on 5th October 2018. Canvas shows a lot of promise as Blank Atlas break their way further into the music industry. The guitar is strongly at the forefront of this EP, heavy, chugging and very impressive. This is particularly the case in first song I Was Told This Is How Wars Start. In my opinion, vocally the strongest song is Sing For Something but for every song there is a big difference in the vocals, which is a good thing.
Canvas is a good example of what would happen if you mixed pop-punk style vocals with heavy, angrier riffs and it is great. Blank Atlas are clearly on the way to something great and this EP is a stepping stone on the way to some phenomenal music.
