This is the second self-released EP from rising London four-piece 50 Hertz *and reaffirms the high standard of song writing evident at their live shows. Title track *‘Never Awake’ _is a brilliant example of the way they effortless build from delicate melancholy to a sweeping, volume-raising chorus, their vocalist soaring above. The more straightforward ‘Panic Attack’ emanates a kind of Smiths **feel and just as you think **‘Only Human’ _is slowing down the pace it ascends into an unwavering chorus before an impressive Tool-like bridge that really shows off their musicianship.
Whereas their live shows made me intrigued this EP really confirms their musical talent and together with their natural Indie-rock star image 50 Hertz have the ability to take this all the way to the top.
