Marwood - Welcome To Marwood

There must be something in the water down south... Whilst Marwood's EP may be slightly lacking on the production front, you cannot deny that it's good. Perhaps a little slower than I was expecting - this is perhaps more rock than punk rock - but the tunes are there for those moments when you just want to listen to some tunes and not get all too carried away by them.

Vocally Marwood are solid enough - lots of 'woahing' backing vocals make the songs are little more textured and one of the tunes ('Two Polar Bears and Four Seals') did a good job of immediately making me think of something else ('Dawn of the Dead' by the Murderdolls if I'm honest - I don't know why) but this is a keeper and Marwood are certainly one to watch. A little more polish and this EP could have been great - but don't let that put you off. Like I said, these guys should be in your 'keep an eye on these guys' category - Good things are coming methinks.

The EP, 'Welcome to Marwood' is available HERE
