"More Than What You Know" EP Review:
While Australia may have received recognition lately for its metalcore and pop punk scene, there's a more traditional rock heartbeat within the country that will never stop beating. A band that wants to continue the tradition while making their own path in the rock scene is Kraill. "Kid." starts their debut EP off with a very melancholy grunge sound. The track oozes a grunge vibe as the female vocals clash with the male vocals to mesh perfectly with the excellent instrumentation. "Broken Fairytale" is an upbeat track that really kicks the tempo up a notch. The crunchy guitars mixed with the high energy really makes the track shine throughout. The guitar solo is phenomenal on the track as well. "Your Girlfriend's A Bitch" is a radio friendly track that should be a single. This track is something special. There's a ton of layers within its four minute span and should be hear right away. "Anti Man" closes things up with a track that seems to rely on the opening track on the EP for inspiration. The track wraps things up with a nice bow on top for the EP. The female lead vocals and overall production throughout the EP are top notch.
Kraill's debut EP is a rarity. Not many other debut EP's have come in and kick in the doors of the scene. The only drawback on the EP is that it's only four songs. We can't wait to hear more music from this exciting rock band from Perth. Keep your eyes and ears peeled on Kraill - your next favorite rock band.
