Review: “Our Summer” 6 songs EP is their latest release and the result though far from a self-indulgent ego trip, rather a moving and elegiac artistic statement from start to finish. This is not your overly predictable Ramon Noodle “Sing-Songy” Nikelback-esque Rock band. Instead this band could even be classed as a 3 genera band: Alternative Rock, Hard Rock and Heavy Full Tilt Punk. FallStart have way too much precision and clarity to live in the shadows of overly-predictable Indie Rock. Indeed this is clearly evident in songs like “Greed” and “Carnivale” which methodically ups the ante to a very respectable level of catchy musical craftsmanship and addictive hard rocking melody that transcends pigeonholing. The music is also commercially viable with a fresh sound and a jagged edge that holds the attentions span of the listener perfectly. In a nutshell this is Green Day meets Good Charlotte meets The Killers meets The White Stripes. The 6 song line-up appeals to many listeners with a wide variety of musical styles – but it packs a powerful punch with a powerful voice for all the rockers out there who want something more than Nikelback, Daughtry or Lifeshouse.
Favorite track: Greed

Conclusion: I would imagine in time we will hear more from this band in the near future. No doubt FallStart has carved a marketable niche for themselves thus far setting them up for marketable success down the road. But for now I can honestly say this is one artist that clearly gives you a musical snapshot that is highly original, unique and dare I say dangerous and chaotic in scope. What else can I say? Rock n’ Roll is still alive and kicking this Summer. This Summer that belongs to FallStart.
Final Rating: “Our Summer” EP gets 4.0 of 5 Stars
