Happy Endings Make You Weak by The Mourning After

Filed under: short reviews — @ 10:31 pm Comments (0)

The Mourning After play alternative guitar rock with a deperate edge that really appeals to me. Some vicious guitar playing and emotionally wrought singing combines to create an angst a lot of people will be living through or remember very well. This is modern punk – a bit of feedback, a bit of melody, and a driving rhythm propelled by a rather good drummer. The highlight for me is the track 2195 with its layers of vocals and uplifting chorus as they fight against the world (I think they win, by the way).

The video above is the song Burst The Bubble and this is a bonus track on the EP. The other songs are even better to my ears but it’s a good song and shows the youthful energy that they exude.
