With a history of making music based on his family’s experiences to unsung heroes, through a rich seam of melancholy tales, songsmith Sean Grant & The Wolfgang is back with their EP titled ‘7 Deadly 7’.
Their latest EP does not disappoint with the same rich songwriting that we have come to expect from the band, each song encapsulates the listener throwing them into a whirlpool of stories and although only lasting 4 songs it provides a great deal.
Opening with ‘Brother’ a song that tells the story of a 25 year old salesman selling dreams to others in an endless cycle of doom, it is this nail biting lyricism that makes Sean Grant & The Wolfgang so addictive. Not to mention that behind this fantastic wordsmith is a band that tear down the walls with their tasty licks and infectious riffs.
Followed by ‘Best Of Men’ a shimmering indie classic that is lead by smooth vocals from Grant backed by shimmering guitar. The next track ‘Take A Mans Body’ is arguably the strongest on the whole EP due to its thunderous riff and raw attitude, think early Kasabian on steroids.
Closing track ‘7 Deadly 7’ is a hymn like number that picks the listener up and sends them floating into a dreamy wonderland. The four track EP is a splendid piece of music that although short has much to offer the listener, whether that be infectious, foot stomping riffs to thunderous rock and roll.
