'Turn The Page' E.P.
'Turn The Page' is the latest EP released by Contrast. A four track exploration of modern times.
Kicking off with 'Modern War', the band delve into the contentious issue of fake news, media influence and the effects it has on societies across the world.
A great opener with a steady beat and great guitar work ' Modern War' is Green Day-esque in its sound, particularly on the vocals.
Taking a step into a more upbeat tempo, 'Uncertain Times' takes a more personal viewpoint on the effects of the pressure in today's world. Carrying on the theme of modernity 'Uncertain Times' is a realistic assessment of society as it currently is. It is a toe tapper for sure and a great example of Contrast's musical ability.
Taking a step further into the EP, track 3 'Born Out Of Line' is a cracker.
An outstanding vocal performance and a chorus so catchy you'd make your local fisherman green with envy, it makes 'Crisis' an instant classic.
Contrast have obviously worked hard on the composition and production of the track, and that hard work shows.
Mastered at the famous Abbey Road studios, Contrast have certainly followed in the footsteps of rock royalty and made their own mark on the music world.
Contrast top off the EP with a stunning little number, 'Not On The Same Page'.
Taking a look at a failing relationship and the realisation that it just isn't working, the lyrics highlight the differences that have driven the relationship apart. 'Not On The Same Page' is full of stunning vocal harmonies which underpin the track. A great piece to wrap up a great EP.
'Turn The Page' is just over thirteen minutes long and its thirteen minutes well spent. Contrast certainly have a gift for telling a story and the talent needed to make it engaging. Definitely one to watch.
