New York band Heroic Enthusiasts have released their sophomore EP, The Second Three. The three tracks are huge indie rock affairs, that evoke unavoidable comparisons to The Smiths. That derivative aspect aside, the tracks stand on their own as powerful rock statements. With strong post-punk guitars and a solid rhythm section, the band blasts its way through mid-tempo rock anthems that are both compelling and enjoyable.
