Released at the end of August, the fabulous Clean Cut Kid bring us their debut EP, ‘We Used to Be in Love’. The single from the group, ‘We Used to be in Love’, has an upbeat, Half Moon Run style, pop melody. With such a catchy chorus, it’s a great start on the road to creating a memorable EP. While upbeat, the lyrics illustrate the act of falling out of love and the change that brings. Altogether, this is an all-around great track that has been stuck in my head for days.
‘Paper Hearts’ includes parts that remind of the lovely Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club and I think that’s down to the beautiful vocals. The infectious melodies continue with ‘Hospital Lights’, slowing things down. Things are then brought together in the fourth and final track of the EP. The Liverpool quartet introduce a more indie-rock vibe with this one with harmonies to melt the heart as they cover Jamie XX’s track ‘Loud Places’. Being a big fan of the original, I was skeptical but, with their indie-rock twist and upbeat vibes, you’d think it was a different song altogether and I love that!
This debut EP just marks the start for this band as they show off all that they can and will continue to do. The infectious quartet are ones to watch. And, if you’re interested in seeing them live, they are doing are some shows around the UK later next month so head to their website and grab some tickets.
