Review of Gun EP by Emit


Emit Gun EP

Art rock is cordially introduced to post rock by this passionate London quartet and the two genres seem to get on very well. Snappy instrumentals allow the androgynous vocals of Lee to tersely bellow out the downtrodden lyrics in 'Gun'. It is nearly five years since this band first performed together and this is very apparent in the tightness and understanding they display, in the slower Americana touching 'Stereo Love'. The coup de grace is a whizzing dialogue driven post-mod number 'Argument Amnesiac' that sees Emit barging into the territory occupied by their contemporaries The Rakes. This well-rounded quartet oozes integrity and their hardworking DIY ethic will surely endear them to a forward thinking label, very soon.
