Music Review: Everywhere by Layla Dorine, Official Divine Magazine Music Reviewer

0 77

Fresh out of London, Everywhere’s new EP ‘Fiction Act’ picks up where their single ‘Some Other Dude’ left off. The single, which received over a million streams on Spotify has developed a bit of a following after being featured on BBC’s Introducing in London.

Available for Pre-order on i-tunes, ‘Fiction Act’ features three new songs: “Shades of Night,” “Heroine,” and “Let it Go,” along with “Some other Dude.”

Signed to Trompe L’oeil Records, Everywhere is an alternative rock band with a major pop sound. Comprised of Max Berga on Vocals, Joe Sanders on Bass, Hugo Hadji on Guitar, Boris Massot on Drums, and Joe Bates on Keys, Everywhere mixes energetic, up-tempo beats with lyrics that tell an at time mournful story.

Part of the chorus of “Shades of Night” the line “So I pray, and I shout, but you just seem to push me out,” sums up the song beautifully, the angst of a missed opportunity to connect with the object of the singers obsession is fueled by an energetic drum beat perfect for a club dance floor or a house party. The singing itself is packed with emotion and delivered in enthusiastic harmony with the drums. With a beat that is reminiscent of The Killers “Mr. Brightside,” though with quite a bit more energy, “Shades of Night” made for quite the listening threat.

Keyboard heavy and just as danceable as “Shades of Night,” “Heroine,” is a nice mix of energy and storytelling, the kind of song that grows on you a little bit more each and every time you hear it. The star of the EP, however, at least in my opinion, is the much slower “Let it Go.” Featuring a mix of soft keyboards, and yearning lyrics, it slows things down just enough for couples to get a little closer without dragging down the evening. “Is it too late, from here on out, the only way is up, up, up,” gives a hint of promise to a song that drips loneliness and regret.

Unlike their 2013 release “Soldier”, and 2015’s “Better Off Alone,” “Fiction Act,” seems to more clearly embraced the rhythm of the club scene. The lyrics are original, the beats catchy and easy to get lost in, as a whole, this EP would be a great at a party, on a car ride, or just filling the house on an afternoon when you need a bit of a boost to get the chores and the homework done.
