The opening number “Light of Sound” has a great modern, hard rock tempo accompanied by lyrics that can be easily picked up and followed along with.
This introductory track immediately perks the ears with its high quality sound, being well mixed and well produced. It kicks off the EP with a good impression and sets up a mind frame that allows you to absorb the remaining material as if they were already your favorite band.
The next two songs keep up with the same radio hit quality and do the job of solidifying your new found respect for Light of Marfa. They maintain a sort of edge throughout like Foo Fighters, but less in your face, making their music a good transition from some melancholy The Killers tune to a heavier beat such as would be found in Alice In Chains. With the hope of hearing more from Light of Marfa in the future, I highly suggest you check them out!
