EP Review The Xcerts - Wildheart Dreaming

The Xcerts - Wildheart Dreaming

It closes this chapter of the band’s life perfectly.

Rating:

With a title like ‘Wildheart Dreaming’ it’s unsurprising to learn that The Xcerts’ new EP bubbles with a real sense of defiant joy. Written during the same sessions that formed their latest album ‘Hold On To Your Heart’, the four tracks are very much from that same family. The likes of ‘You Mean Everything’ and ‘Fight Or Run’ are bold calls-to-arms, much like the album’s evocative, sax-laden ‘Drive Me Wild’. It’s the EP’s final offering, however, that provides a somewhat different tone, with its hushed vocals and acoustic guitar. While stylistically, ‘Real Love’ feels like a bit of a sidestep, it embodies a sense of reflection and acceptance that closes this chapter of the band’s life perfectly.

The Bitch With The Sauce: Kim Petras

Her words - not ours. From haters to heartbreak, with every obstacle thrown at her Kim Petras has only gotten stronger, and debut album ‘Clarity’ is just the tip of the iceberg.
