Music Review for 7 Day Weekend’s Self-Titled EP
By C.W. Ross
7 Day Weekend hails from Warrington, England and they recently released their five track self-titled debut EP.
The 5-songs that make up their EP alternate between, pop-punk and alt. rock in style. The band also mixes it up by using varied tempos in the songs that give things a nice ebb & flow.
Personally I like the band’s songs that have more rock edged guitar and drum parts found on them. For me that rock edge helped to keep them from sounding to cookie cutter pop-punk.
Highlight tracks include the up tempo, “Ghosts of Me” and “Seasons like These.” If you’re looking for something a little bit slower but still with some punch then give the power ballad sounding track, “Hide”, a listen.
Review Takeaway- The band 7 Day Weekend comes out of the gate strong with their self-titled debut EP. If you want to catch them live though you better do it quickly because I read on their blog that they might be breaking up in the next year when the young band members start heading off to universities to further their education.
(Review Update)- The band let me know that they’ll be going strong- ‘Think the blog you read is quite an old one. 3 members have gone to uni last september and we’re keeping band going! 🙂 Have two tours booked next year (february & april), if you want to mention them instead!’
