Blue and green record exploding into shards

Stuck In Conflict
Embers Glow EP

Despite managing to supply the most clichéd biography ever, a reasonably thin mix and some of the most eighties-arcade synth sounds I’ve heard since it actually was the eighties, this isn’t a bad starting point for Stuck In Conflict.

What they have is a collection of five melodic songs, some good harmonies and lyrics that are green, but earnest. With the exception of ‘You Talk Too Much’, which doesn’t sound quite right, the songs are of a high standard, with ‘Wearing Black’ and ‘Cracks Amongst the Ashes’ leading the charge.

It is clearly early days for this band and if they put in some hard graft they could really hone their sound.
