An album full of surprises, eaststrikewest excel at doing the unexpected. We’re important is the difficult second album, and the band have abolished all fears that they would stumble upon approaching it.
An 8 track release, eaststrikewest flex their muscles in every aspect. Blending Post rock with indie, alternative with classic, vocals and instrumentals, you could think that the album be bound to fail, however the variety in aspects is executed extremely well. Each track sounds whole, and each instrument has its place within the tracks. The vocals add an hint of edginess, the strings add delicacy, which could have seemed at a juxtapose to the monolithic rhthyms, but the resulting tracks are ones that will have you turning the volume up and tapping your feet with an inner fury.
To say that Oxide Tones is happy to have the opportunity to release this album with the band would be a huge understatement, we firmly believe that this album is one that listeners of any genre will love and keep coming back to.
