Artist: Cold Summer
Overall Album Vibe: The post hardcore UK band Cold Summer offers up a five track EP, ‘Wake’, a culmination of multiple rock influences. For a small album, it provides a good variety of sound ranging from the screaming vocals of “Wake” to the solid signing of “Waiting.” The best song on the album is a combination of screaming and singing, “A is for Arson.” The album features a mixture of bluesy guitar and hardcore rock guitar to great effect. While sometimes the scream influences leaves more to be desired, the catchiness of songs like “Car Crash (In Progress)” makes this album a great head-banger.
Review Tagline: Post hardcore band Cold Summer’s ‘Wake’ is a small album but offers up a lot of great music.
Standout Tracks: “A if For Arson”, “Car Crash (In Progress)”
