ALBUM REVIEW with TIM STRAW

SPLIT SECOND

On May 16th 2017 local punk/emo/poppers released their self titled full length LP ‘Split Second,’ the album is fantastic.  Playing in and experimenting in a genre that can grow tired quickly isn’t always easy but, the guys in Splint Second never give you a chance to get bored.   A twelve track record is usually what I feel like is the perfect length, I like being left wanting and this record gives you just that.  The vocals for the most part are clean and it’s easy to find yourself singing along, the lyrics are identifiable without ever being trite, they’ve produced a record that makes you feel connected to something a little bit more than yourself, to a collective unconscious of emotion.  Their structures while following a more pop ideal never get tired, you never get bored.  Highlights for me are ‘A Letter,’ that to me has the best vocals on the record.  I really enjoyed “Sleep Now Juggernaut,” as well and the acoustic “Long way from home,” is fantastic although I admit, I am a sucker for anything acoustic.  I literally couldn’t find anything wrong with this album.  Split Second are most definitely a band that I will be keeping my eyes and ears on.  Check them out on most streaming platforms and Facebook.
