I'm mostly in love with this EP. The guitars weave a speedy tapestry of abrupt starts and stops, the drums remind me of The Fall of Troy in the way that they mesh with the vocals, and the vocals themselves are superb. Even the bass has a few standout bits, but for the most part it closely follows the guitarline. Overall, that's a minor issue - and if anything, it's a positive, since the bass itself is speedy. I could care less. This album is fun as hell, with the only negative possibly being the lyrics.
This release is a fantastic listen. Blakfish have a pretty unique overall sounds which although can be compared to one or two other post-hardcore / math-rock bands stays very intersting.
This is one of my favourite discoveries in recent months. a big recommendation
Blakfish are smart with their particular brand of stop-start post-hardcore. Combining the dissonance of early The Fall of Troy and the catchy harmonies of Thrice circa The Illusion of Safety with the technicality of Meet Me In St. Louis, See You In Another City is a record that will appeal to both ends of the hardcore spectrum. Angular drumming and impressive intertwining guitars give an impression of a much more mature outfit, and a memorable scream will keep these five songs in your head for days.
