"Surviving Seasons" EP Review
"Animal Pharm" is fast, aggressive and in your face with their brand of Punk Rock. The opener sets the tone early and doesn't let up with its early Offspring like vibes. "SelfLess" cranks things up a bit as it has a bit more melody and a tad faster with its pacing. The bridge features a more melodic dip in its instrumentation before building back up and breaking back through with its catchy chorus. "Torn" is a cover of the Natalie Imbruglia track. "Trash Bunny" continues down the upbeat Punk Rock path set before it and creates a nice catchy sound that pulls in listeners with ease. "OutLook" is the longest track on the EP, clocking in at over four minutes. There's a lot to like on the track as its filled to the brim with their signature sound and packs the Punk Rock punch that they're known for. "20 Winks" doesn't slow down. The closer keeps the intensity high and it helps close things out with a tone that makes the listener crave for even more.

Verdict:
Surviving Seasons showcase their Punk Rock sound perfectly with their recent EP.

-Interview- (8/3/21)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Surviving Seasons" and is there any meaning behind it?

Billy and Pj have been playing together for over twenty years in numerous bands. One day we were working on creating a new band and we received a call from Nick (who we knew since High School) saying he just moved in next door to Billy. We invited him over to jam and the rest was history. Pj came up with the band name. We all have jobs where we're required to work outside in all the elements which is sometimes difficult, hence the name Surviving Seasons.
