Narrow Head: Far Removed

Far Removed cover art
 
Far Removed is the debut EP from Dallas based alt rock band, Narrow Head. The five tracks take alt rock formula song styles and marries them with metal instrumentation and lonesome vocals. The effect is an EP that is strong on clich√© sounds, but lacking in originality. The EP works everywhere, with nice dynamic swings, interesting guitar lines and solid vocal performances. The one problem is that we've heard it all before, many, many times before. The state of alt rock is one of stagnation, where bands stay firmly in formula and have forgotten that art is about taking chances. Stream and buy Far Removed at the link below.
