'Supernaturalation' EP Review
Since the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP, 'Dancing for Money' back in 2018, the Oxfordshire based band have toured their contagiously hook-filled, fist pumping sound around the country, including packed venues across Oxfordshire and London’s Camden Town.
Whether they are playing at rock and metal festivals in Oxfordshire or supporting Oliver Dawson’s Saxon at RockFest, people are talking about Molly Karloff’s addictive riff driven, no-nonsense punchy rock sound in a very positive way.
Since making their noisy presence on the UK rock scene known, Molly Karloff have been busy in the studio recording the tracks to their second studio EP release, which embraces and evolves their unique, yet familiar sound, of stripped back guitar and bass grooves.
2. 'She Said'
3. 'Do You Wanna'
4. 'Do It Again'
5. 'The Other Side'
Recorded at Parlour Studios in Kettering, and engineered, mixed and produced by Neil Haynes (Sacred Mother Tongue, Black Dogs, Awake, Sympathy State), the band see 'Supernaturalation' as a precursor to the release of their debut album later in the year.
We start this latest ep with the title track 'Supernaturalation' which is full on with a heavy and dirty groove and is a great way to kick off this ep. It has a repetitive addictive beat that leads into an explosive chorus.
'She Said' will have that head bobbing and feet tapping right from the off. This is a really cool rock track with attitude and a pumping underlying beat before 'Do You Wanna' drops the pace to a slow and steady start before we are engulfed in a ramped up tune with powerful sound both musically and vocally.
'Do It Again' is another no holds barred full on express train of a track with some really aggressive guitar work which leads us into the last track, 'The Other Side'. It has a staggered start that builds as we get into the song and elevates into the chorus before there is time for some serious solo work.
I really enjoyed this ep, it is a no thrills full on rock ep, on the heavier side with some really addictive beats and some wonderful guitar work throughout.
TFM gives 'Supernaturalation' 4/5, I am looking forward to catching these guys live soon and also the album mentioned later this year. Go and check these guys out now if you like your rock on the heavier grungy side.
