EASY PREY: Closer: CS

I like Easy Prey a lot—they often remind me of a heavy, raw version of Young Widows. Closer, their debut two-song release, immediately attacks the listener with a song that sounds like if you mixed the ferocity and vocals of Swiz with the interesting and atmospheric guitars of the Young Widows. It’s really good. The second song is not as fast, and as a result the vocals never reach the same level of franticness, but the song’s repetitive heaviness sounds like what you’d end up with if you took the Young Widows, made them heavier, and basically gave them more… soul. I hope that makes sense, because I absolutely mean it as a compliment. I’m looking forward to hearing what’s next from this band.
