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 โ€˜ANYTHINGโ€™ showcases everything that the band represent.ย 

Igniting the EP off in itโ€™s entirety, the introduction includes an electronic based structure. โ€œBack of Your Handโ€ has received wide recognition since itโ€™s release, with even getting coverage of a Wolverhampton Wanderers promo video.ย โ€œBack Of Your Handโ€™ is about TV and media controlling us, or trying to. Itโ€™s about the two-facedย politicians arguing then being best friends to look good or make a point because thatโ€™s whatย they think people want to see, dumbing down the common people, benefitting themselvesโ€.

โ€œCollectorโ€ is fast-paced and refuses to be left behind. Finding itโ€™s way through a powerful performance, the build up identifies as a standout section on the EP. A short โ€˜Interludeโ€™ is a stepping stone that breathes a sinister presence of โ€˜whatโ€™s going to happen next?โ€™.ย โ€œNo Coverโ€™ 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. โ€œHuman Existenceโ€ will hold your attention from start to finish. It will impact you like no other song on the EP. ย “Human Existence is questioningย everything and anything,thatโ€™s why the EP is called โ€˜ANYTHINGโ€™.โ€

Score: 7.5/10
