Burn The Fleet – S/T
Walnut Tree Records
Having already attracted glowing comparisons to giants of the modern post-hardcore world like Thursday and Thrice, Southampton's Burn The Fleet are a young band on many people's lips right now, and their self-titled debut EP certainly illustrates exactly why that is. Clocking in at just over the twenty minute mark, Burn The Fleet is a near flawless introduction to a band with a huge amount of momentum behind them.
Opening gambits 'Conduits' and 'Nautilus' – the latter of which is arguably the pick of the EP - show straight away why everyone is getting so worked up about the four-piece, with their dark and brooding undercurrents, technically mesmerising The Artist In The Ambulance-era guitars and vocalist Andrew Convey's impressively dexterous range. While it's not too difficult to pick out various moments that recall the aforementioned US acts, Burn The Fleet are very much their own band and given that they're already capable of penning tracks as brilliant as 'Confessions Of A Justified Sinner' – an awesome track which gradually builds to a thrilling climax – it's impossible not to be completely won over.
Mark our words, this the beginning of something great, as Burn The Fleet are destined for the very top.
