EP Review: Jaws of Life - 'Jaws Of Life Mini Mix Tape'
Ascending new pop-punk UK foursome Jaws of Life freshens up the genre scene with their new magnetic EP experience, Jaws Of Life Mini Mix Tape.
Pop-punk is one of those genres that no matter how many bands you sift through, there will always be some that will stand out above the rest. Every time you go back in, there will always be a gem you will pull out from an endless assortment of talented bands. Jaws Of Life happens to be one of those underappreciated rare cuts that get caught in a handful of diamonds.
"Jaws Of Life Mini Mix Tape is a wistful, summery, emotional, pop-punk experience. While a short listening experience, each track is brimming with quality dynamic instrumentalism and impassioned lyrical meditation."
An electrifying pop-punk band hailing from South Wales, the impressive four-piece is slowly capturing the attention of the genre scene with their new EP, Jaws Of Life Mini Mix Tape. With their infectious guitar hooks, nostalgically vocal pop-punk resonance, and attractive percussive delivery, Jaws Of Life Mini Mix Tape is a fresh burst of magnetic intensity wrapped in a small package.
While there is no doubt that Jaws Of Life have their own identity on this EP, Jaws Of Life's pop-punk influences such as A Day To Remember, Neck Deep, New Found Glory, and Blink182 are creatively yet subtlely sewn into the fabric of each experience. Starting with the opener, "Stargazing," Jaws Of Life hits the ground running strong. With compelling instrumental energies that sit in the vigor of yesteryear and the high-caliber musicianship of today, it moves things forward to the next moment of the EP "I Promise." Full of youthful charisma and shades of warm summer guitar energies, it takes us to our gorgeous acoustic closer, "Your Song." A softer and sentimentally engaging change from the last two tracks, it shows the band's impressive use of lyricism and instrumental delivery.
Jaws Of Life Mini Mix Tape is a wistful, summery, emotional, pop-punk experience. While a short listening experience, each track is brimming with quality dynamic instrumentalism and impassioned lyrical meditation. While Jaws of Life is new to the pop-punk scene, their new EP is a magnetic experience that will make a strong and exciting impact in the pop-punk scene and industry.
