You know that feeling you get when you hear a band with a fresh sound that sounds both completely new and familiar? That’s the feeling that Newcastle, Australia five-piece Eat Your Heart out provide. After signing with Fearless Records earlier this year, the band released their brand new EP Carried Away.
The up-and-coming alt-rock act combines crisp, melodic pop sounds with grungy guitars, courtesy of Andrew Anderson and Will Moore, and a powerful rhythm section featuring Dom Cant on bass and Jake Cronin on drums. Vocalist Caitlin Henry pushes things over the top with her emotive delivery – think All We Know is Falling-era Paramore combined with the edgier side of Armor for Sleep.
In addition to Carried Away, the band recently showcased their knack for melody by covering Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” for the latest Punk Goes Pop compilation. If those opening guitars don’t grab your attention, just wait until Henry tears into the track’s chorus.
If you like what you hear, you can buy the Carried Away EP on iTunes as we await a full-length debut album announcement from the band. Stay up to date by following the Eat Your Heart Out on Facebook and Twitter.
