Manhattan Coast – ‘This One’s For You’ EP Review

22nd January 2014 0 By Suzie Rottencrotch

Hailing from South Wales, Manhattan Coast are a hybrid of influences from You Me At Six and Deaf Havana bringing fresh Rock to the nation with a raw underdog feel. The band is slowly and steadily building a following with heavy tracks, dipped in melodic riffs that hook you from the start and wouldn’t go a miss at any rockin’ party.

This EP offers five tracks of pop-punk rock self indulgence, they certainly sound more seasoned than You Me At Six sounded on their debut album. ‘War On The Weekend’ is a pure melodic raucous which sets the scene that oozes hooking riffs and raw power that is followed up with ‘Monsoon Season In Machine City’. ‘This One’s For you’ is the most radio friendly track of all with a delightful melodic chorus that would challenge You Me At Six at their best. ‘Dreams Are For Dreamers’ chants choruses seeps a youthful rebellion whilst ‘Carpe Diem’ closes the release to show you why Manhattan Coast are being rated as a heavy contender for the future of Rock.
