Review Summary: The logical stepping stone between Violence Violence and Still Nothing Moves You.Scared People
acts as the stepping stone between 2006's legendary Violence Violence
and 2008's Still Nothing Moves You
. This EP falls short of just eight minutes, but in that time the band demonstrate their new punk-rock influenced sound perfectly, moving away from the powerviolence aspect that made their debut album what it was. Two minute opener It Rained Today Inside My Head sees the band experiment with various dynamics, a feature that they streamline for the next release, and it makes for a much welcome break from the constant bludgeoning that was the previous album. Tracks like The Lines In My Forehead and Every Corner A Liquor Store mix incredibly violent openings with slow, mid-tempo curbstomping middle sections, whilst Mothers And Fathers seems to be the most experimental track the band have released in their career so far. The only flaw with the EP is the production job, which seems to be a little underwhelming after the treatment its predecessor was given. Overall, Scared People
is worth checking out, even if its just for the Negative FX cover that Ceremony end with.
