All We Are // We Hunt
These days you need to be wearing at least 3 pairs of headphones at any given time to keep up with all of the top-notch music piling out of Liverpool, and All We Are are the latest band to prove this probably-watertight theory. They craft devastating, emotionally-involved folk that belies their age; they haven’t even been together for a year. Far more impressively for such a young band, they’ve already got an incredibly well-defined identity, and one that doesn’t feel worn out or clichéd, but organic and absolutely genuine.
And although tracks like “Red Sky” have the sort of melodic credentials to make even Mr McCartney blush, they also manage to encompass an unconventional spirit; bits fit into bits that you might think they shouldn’t really do, and the result is something that is very uniquely All We Are. There’s also something very magnetic about the sparse, threatening mood of “Cardhouses”, and when it explodes into its cathartic final third, you won’t be able to keep eyes or ears off them.
Payper Tiger Records will be releasing the “We Hunt” EP on May 1st, and there’s a launch show on 28th April at St. Brides Church, Liverpool.
