Album Review: Hearts Under Fire - Letters EP

All-female punk group Hearts Under Fire return with 'Letters' and it's more of the same impressive punk rock that they have established despite a few line-up changes. 'Liquid Luck' quickly shows they are enable to get the right balance of fierce guitars and melodic vocals, although it sounds pretty average.

'It's Not Me, It's You' is lively and shows a bit of variation and their use of harmonies in the chorus especially show this and are favourable. Whilst 'Light My Way' manage to keep up the momentum, as they stay to their musical beliefs and become something they are not. 'Animals' may seem pretty forgettable but it keeps the EP's tempo and shows off the bands skill in a good light.

On face value you think Hearts Under Fire are just four Hayley Williams wannabes but theyu're anything but that, as they have the musicianship and songs to go far. 'Letters' could be the first step towards better things.
