The StopMotion Men - What Now

Three piece Cardiff band The StopMotion Men have released an impressive debut EP that is sure to get goatee-d chins wagging. With a big, power-rock sound in the tradition of Pearl Jam, this short but sweet collection shakes the speakers as guitarist and singer Geraint Connor's powerful vocals let loose. The EP opens with the intense 'What Now' with Connor's Vedder-like wail riding above the prodigious playing of bassist Hywel Jenkins and drummer Ben Wilson, while the dramatic 'Spit and Chew' really showcases Connor's amazing vocal talent. The gorgeous 'Hurt You' shows that the band is equally adept at the power-ballad, lush strings beautifully complementing the band's performance.

This is a first-rate debut from an exciting young band, powerful and unabashedly bold - just like the good 'ole days.
