Album Review

Track and Field – You Are My Home

Leeds quintet Track and Field’s first offering, a four-track EP entitled ‘You Are My Home’ falls into my inbox today and instantly makes my ears happy; with hazy melodic vibes reminiscent of Transit’s early maerial, the EP is nothing less than a great debut.

The band itself is made up of previous members of punk-rock outfit ‘The Plight’ and grind-violence mob ‘The Afternoon Gentlemen’ – although neither of these efforts became household names, their new project seems as though it just might. Not since Taking Back Sunday’s debut record have we heard emo that’s this well executed.

Mick Grogan’s vocals are evocative and easy on the ears. Standout track ‘Up Side’ is a brilliant indie-emo song and even though it clocks in at over 5 minutes, it never seems self indulgent. Lead single ‘World’ is another piece of brilliantly emotive music – fans of Moose Blood won’t be able to resist this lot.

Based on the evidence on offer here, Track and Field are worth a listen, and definitely an act to keep an eye out for.
