Youthful energy pulses all throughout the newest EP by Empty Lungs, which fans are going to love for its noisy yet accessible recklessness.
Don’t Get It is a three-track serenade that combines brash skater punk sounds with the polish of European rock to create a feel-good yet rebellious soundtrack. The band’s approach is short and sweet, coming in with noise and exiting victoriously.
The EP opens with “Don’t Get It,” a fast and in-your-face rocker. This boisterous cut is nice and short, an apt opening for the youthful and energetic record. Here, we see the band’s expertly mashed up sounds of fun punk rock with uniform arena rock sounds blare ferociously in this quick track.
“Losing It, Finding It,” has a more conventional feel that would sound monstrous in an arena rock setting. The band’s youthfulness shines with a mature intensity, performing a feel-good cut that shows off the group’s technical and energetic prowess.
Empty Lungs closes the album with “Fragile,” a surprisingly introspective cut that laments and cautions about the vulnerabilities of life. The opening bass line is nice and dirty, holding steady the most melodic of the album’s trio of songs. A fantastic performance capitalized by killer bass licks and sugary vocals allows “Fragile” to cap off a fantastic EP.
It’s extravagant to see how easily the band moves quickly through the EP, starting out with a more punkish flair and ending with an anthemic energy. Empty Lungs clearly has the diverse tools to make a fantastic piece of artwork. We need more.
