Watching Traffic EP

By The Unisex

It seems that when they are not busy making porn movies, the people of Sweden also like to produce top notch records for the rest of the world to enjoy.

The Unisex have found the time to forge an EP featuring four non-offensive, easy to digest indie rock songs. The easiest comparison to make would be to their fellow country men The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, however The Unisex happen to have a melodic talisman in the form of their front man whose voice is so gentle on the ear that in makes a summer breeze seem deafening.

First track "Go Again" has lead singer Jonas wailing like some subdued banshee while some over the top guitar solo plays away in the background. This music is instantly enjoyable and doesn't take numerous listens to get into.

"Castle of Air" rides close to the sound of the Thrills but has the energy and spark as well as some psychedelic spike to make it superior to anything from "So Much For The City".

"Break The Silence" has all the trademarks of some trippy drug filled 60s musical epic. It runs its course at a slower pace to the rest of the songs on the EP but is jammed pack full of Doors styled organ playing and it's hard not to be uplifted when you hear this song.

The EP is rounded off with "La Familia" which was recorded live in Stockholm and manges to capture all the energy and excitement of the band on stage and shows that the lead singers vocal talents aren't just down to some technological wizardry in the studio.

The Unisex, music for girls and boys.
