I don’t know if it was intended as such, but when I listen to Cheeky I hear a total throwback to the Recess catalog. There’s the fast, snottiness like mid-era FYP, with Bent Outta Shape-similar leads sprinkled throughout. Meanwhile, there’s young lady vocals screaming about jerks at shows, being mad because of jerks, and jerks in general. As a fan of a lot of these things from Recess I’m reminded of, I think this is a flawless EP, and officially think this band completely rules.
