IV – Hurst (Independent)

A really impressive debut EP from Sydney four piece “Hurst”. “IV” is four tracks long and filled with some really cool songwriting. “Whine” is the first up, with an awesome funky riff on guitar and big vocals from Ana Veira, which both become a staple of the EP, this was the single, and easy to see why. The next song “Eve”, continues the foot stomping fun, has a nice sparseness to the verse. ”Begs For More” changes up the mood, with a lighter feel; the guitar becomes frenetic and a cool contrast well with the relaxed keys. The production is done just right, with it not sounding too slick, and the instruments sounding real. The entire band is contributing throughout, and has ended up with a debut really worth hearing.
