"Some Kind Of Chondriac" EP Review
Willow Bay released this seven track EP last month and with an Alternative Punk style, these kids know how to crank out the catchy jams. Let's dive in and see what they're all about. "Make Me" open up the EP with a highly melodic Punk sound that brings to mind a dash of early Green Day. The track is infectious and a solid opener overall. "Twitch" starts off slow but picks up and levels off in a melodic chorus that will attract Pop Punk fans in droves. The track is a perfect example of the catchy Punk influenced Alternative Rock that Willow Bay are able to create. There's a Weezer influence on the track also. "Cold and Alone" slows things down a bit and the passion really seeps out. The track is a more of a ballad than their previous tracks but it's just as powerful in its own way. Lighters will be in the sky for sure with the live rendition. "Count Your Lives" kicks up the pace back up and elevates the EP to new heights. The riffing on the track combined with the melodic Punk Rock vocals make it a stand out track. "Orion's Belt" starts off with a wonderful guitar riff before erupting into chaos in all the right way. The roller coaster sound of the track does more than enough to separate itself from the previous tracks and should be a fan favorite. "Misanthropy" is track that when its firing on all cylinders is a real treat to listen to. The Punk tendencies on the track are really outstanding and are very natural sounding. "Tyrant" blows the doors off the EP and with it being the closer, only makes the listener crave for even more. Seven songs is hardly enough so do yourself a favor and keep your eyes and ears on Willow Bay if you're a fan of Punk music.

Verdict:
Willow Bay's EP will definitely get stuck in your ear in all the best ways with their form of Alternative Punk.
