Review by Rivertree
3 stars This is the sibling EP corresponding to 'Acrobat', both released in 2012 and each of them comprises two songs. A somewhat minimalistic way of expression, yes. But artistic freedom is worthwhile, so much the more when the result appeals in the end. The band's songs are infiltrated by a 70's psychedelia feeling, even provoked by the vocals. But this does not really sound retro exclusively on the other hand. What appeals is the combination of 'new' and 'old' fashion - the opposite of narrow-minded, if you will.

One or two may be reserved due to the uncommon release behaviour - doubts about the musicianship are not appropriate though. Equally to the other EP the second song - which does not represent the title track - knocks my socks off really. In the first instance it's the unusual beat, which needs some time to make friends. But then the following jamming part, just right from the middle, is made of an irresistible atmosphere, fantastic! This leads to the conclusion, that THE OVALS are an interesting band to explore - there you are.
