REVIEW: Year of the Locust Comes Out Swinging on Self-Titled EP
New York City based Year of the Locust’s self-titled EP may only be four tracks long but it comes swinging hard and demonstrates their status as a proper rock band.
Straight out of the gate, “Stay Alive,” brings a melodic rock vibe and showcases all sides of Scotty Mac’s vocal range.
“Line Em Up” kicks off with a catchy guitar riff. This energetic track has a tad bit of a southern rock feel. We wouldn’t be surprised if the NFL picked this song up for promo commercials!
“Whispers in the Dark” reveals a softer side of the band. A solid guitar solo completes this rock ballad.
“Sorry” is the stand out track on the EP in our estimation. The verses include both spoken vocals in addition to singing. The chorus hits hard with Mac’s heartfelt vocals. Just when his powerful “sorry” plays on your heartstrings, an emotional guitar solo also takes you in its grasp.
