Released at the beginning of this month, METHODS are a quintet that hail from the Midlands. Creating an atmosphere that blends a melancholic sound with synthesisers, the rockers burst onto the scene back in 2015. Returning with new music, the brand new EP ‘ANYTHING’ showcases everything that the band represent. 

Igniting the EP off in it’s entirety, the introduction includes an electronic based structure. “Back of Your Hand” has received wide recognition since it’s release, with even getting coverage of a Wolverhampton Wanderers promo video. “Back Of Your Hand’ is about TV and media controlling us, or trying to. It’s about the two-faced politicians arguing then being best friends to look good or make a point because that’s what they think people want to see, dumbing down the common people, benefitting themselves”.

Collector” is fast-paced and refuses to be left behind. Finding it’s way through a powerful performance, the build up identifies as a standout section on the EP. A short ‘Interlude’ is a stepping stone that breathes a sinister presence of ‘what’s going to happen next?’. “No Cover’ blends a more positive approach to the band. With a fresh fragrance of an uplifting nature, lyrically the style still holds onto a darker subject. “Human Existence” will hold your attention from start to finish. It will impact you like no other song on the EP.  “Human Existence is questioning everything and anything,that’s why the EP is called ‘ANYTHING’.”

Score: 7.5/10
