When a band releases a complete body of work, be it a single, EP or album, they deserve at least to be listened to. When the work in question is this offering from New London Fire, it just has to be listened to, as this is an incredible first outing from the New Jersey band. I stumbled upon this band via one of the many podcasts I listen to. I was won over immediately. Imagine my surprise when I visited the bands website, to find out the EP was completely free. Needless to say, It soon made the transition from web, to my hard disk and very happy it’s been there too.

The EP features 2 songs from the forthcoming album “I Sing the Body Holographic”, they are “Different” which is an amazing opening to an EP and “We Don’t Bleed”. Also featured are “This is What Became”, “I Believe in Ghosts” and a remix of “I Believe in Ghosts”, which for me is probably the weakest track. I have to say my favorite track is “This is What Became” which has an amazing production, with an almost Phil Spector layer of sounds, where things just build and build and then almost explode back to basics at the end.

If I were to compare the bands sound to anything else, I would say there are definite Pink Floyd elements, especially the music and production, along with a sort of ColdPlay / Green Day lyrical style. This probably sounds a funny kind of mish mash and no doubt you will probably have your own comparisons to make, but it all fuses very well and forms one helluva CD.

Conclusion : A Wave Form is just amazing, with some incredible songs and some incredible production. I highly recommend you go pick this up and give your ears a treat. I can’t wait to hear the album, to see if they can keep up this high level across a whole CD.
