It seems like a lot of new bands are testing the waters with EP's instead of full length CD's these days. The latest band I have run into, that adheres to this format is Farewell My Love. They are a Screamo/Pop band out of Ohio looking to make some waves with their first EP for Standby Records Mirror, Mirror. They kind of remind me of My Chemical Romance, but with a little more edge. The EP is packed with 4 original tunes as well as a cover of Bon Jovi's It's My Life. The songs are punchy and poppy and grow on you after awhile. The standouts are Skip the Memories and My Perfect Thing. The cover of the Bon Jovi tune is good, but comes off a little karaoke. I would had liked to of heard them put a little more of their own spin on it. All in all not a bad start for some new comers.
Bottom Line: Power/Pop new comers looking to make an impact with a melodic EP. The songs are catchy, and after a few listens will start to get you hooked.
