Review - 4 Letter Holiday - Contentment is Happy Boredom

4 Letter Holiday - Contentment is Happy Boredom

View The Review

4 out of 10

Ah the unmistakable sound of the young, inexperienced band. It's not a bad sound, exactly, there's a definite charm in the innocence and clumsy production, not to mention the rather generic songwriting. And of course the influences worn proudly on the sleeve - probably at some point down the line those influences will be distilled down to a cohesive "sound" for the band, but at the moment there's the Oasis bit, the Clash bit, the Jimi bit. And so on.

It's hard to hate it because there's such a wonderful sense of enthusiasm and potential, but the music hasn't quite caught up yet.
