Review: 'Reckless Intentions'
'Lights (EP)'   

-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '14th July 2017'

Our Rating:
Fuck’s sake. I’m sick to the guts of every band toting a guitar citing the fucking Foo Fighters as an influence. Seriously? Premium purveyors of moderate radio-friendly rock, the very antithesis of Nirvana. The rock band suits namedrop when they’re trying to look edgy or interesting. So, introducing Reckless Intentions. Wait, isn’t that an oxymoron? Recklessness suggests a lack of forethought; an intention is forethought. I guess it’s no more of an oxymoron than placing Foo Fighters in the ‘alternative’ bracket.

So, what of ‘Lights’, the debut EP from this Brighton combo who tick all the boxes with their references to not only Foo Fighters, but All Time Low, Green Day, blah blah? Yeah. It’s not bad.

‘Ghost Town’ combines elements of shouty, rough ‘n’ ready post punk with keen melodies, and it’s by far the EP’s strongest track. ‘Stitches’ could be a Biffy or Twin Atlantic, and the buoyant pop punk of ‘Outcast’ is a distillation of Weezer and Blink 182. I’m guessing that was their intention, reckless or otherwise.
