Bad Suns / Jack Savoretti - EP reviews
Transpose from Southern Cal band Bad Suns shows real potential. This four track EP varies from cool indie (like the radio friendly 'Cardiac Arrest' and excellent title track) to the rather clunky 'Salt' and '20 Years' which try and pull off Friendly Fires vibe to lesser effect. Nonetheless, a decent little debut with the promise of better things to come. 
What's this? Oh, an EP from handsome troubadour Jack Savoretti. The four track Sweet Hurt showcases Savoretti's luscious vocals and delicate songwriting while the arrangements are elegant and discrete. There are hints of Ben Howard here, while the rather jazzy 'Jack In The Box' shows a musical direction that Savoretti will hopefully explore more fully - it works well. All in all, an impressive collection of songs.
