Jangly guitars, vigorous post-punk basslines and soaring synths combine for the sophomore EP fromÂ MeanjinÂ alt-rockersÂ Staples. TitledÂ ‘Everything Will Be Okay’, the record is out onÂ November 18.
Packed to the brim with a visceral and vibrant mix of heartfelt vocals, intricate drum grooves and lush soundscapes,Â StaplesÂ elaborate on the EP’s broad subject matter: “â€˜Everything Will Be Okayâ€™Â explores a spectrum of human emotional experiences, juxtaposing its longing melancholy, fever-dream anxiety and introspective darkness with naÃ¯ve passion and bittersweet nostalgia.”
Normal Life is an explosive introduction, diving into melancholic depths layeredÂ with cascading polymetric guitars, icy synths and steadfast basslines.Â Â Â
Next, the rhythmic interplay ofÂ The TrainÂ takes hold to mimic the relentless onslaught of anxious thoughts, beforeÂ OptimistÂ pivots to upbeat indie-rock that gently blossoms into cathartic joy.
Providing a feel-good reprieve, the nostalgia-dipped tuneÂ Unjust Jeans (and Guillotines) energetically inspires a smile, and feels synonymous with festival season.
Taking a bow with the dream-rock moodiness of the final trackÂ A Scene of Yesterday, this EP is a stellar showcase of the band’s talents.
In the lead-up to this EP,Â StaplesÂ have seen support fromÂ Hysteria Mag, AMNplify, AAA Backstage, Good Call Live, idobi radio (US), 4ZZZ, Rebel FMÂ Â and more.
StaplesÂ are set to spread their good vibrations even higher with their newÂ EP ‘Everything Will Be Okay’Â – out TODAY -Â November 18.
