WHITE – CUTS THAT DON’T BLEED (Review)

THE debut EP from five-piece White has finally arrived and for fans of the band it’s a real treat.

Opening with the track  “Private Lives” it’s a perfect opener to a diamond EP, “Private Lives” has been available as a live version on YouTube since April 2015. So the fact its finally released as a recorded track is a blessing to many fans.

The song incorporates pop, electro and even rock into a epic four minutes – fifty five seconds. The harmonic vocals that chant “I wanna take a look at your private lives/behind your eyes” add a real catchy element to the song. It has a confident swagger to it.

The listener then delves into the more solemn “Recreational TV” a track that uses vocals to give off a cult-esque chant, breaking up the words “recreation, television” over and over. The synths are prominent and it creates a club floor filler.

Now if you’ve seen White live then you know just how power the next track “Step-Up” really is. Lead singer Leo Condie screams into a microphone from the 60’s USSR as the thumping drums, courtesy of Kristin Lynn, below in the background. The sample synth that overlays the song adds a heavier element to the song and makes it “Step-Up” from the other EP tracks.

Finally, the cleverly crafted “I Liked You Better When You Needed Me” concludes the song. Adding the two parts together, the first being a soft intro to the monumental second. Hamish Fingland and Chris Potter drive the track with their guitars, it carries on the darker tones that were created from “Step-Up” but it also adds an epic feel, the track is the perfect end to the EP.

“Cuts That Don’t Bleed” is a 15 minute long piece of art and something you cannot ignore.
