A defo contender for emo / post-hardcore album of the year this is a stunning full length follow up to their two cracking mini albums. A hectic last twelve months saw the band garner glowing reviews, tour Britain with the likes of The Movielife and Sum 41 and play a storming set on the Concrete Jungle stage at Reading. "!Hey Zeus!" tops all that with its exciting mix of hard edged spiky guitar and caustic vocals.
The last ten months have seen the band go from only having done a handful of shows to being the subject of Kerrang, NME, Rocksound and Big Cheese articles, interviews and Radio One plays and a track on the Fierce Panda "Go" EP, (featured here in a re-recorded form), a sell-out tour with Elliott and well received slots at the Reading and Leeds Festivals. The new EP showcases their developing sound, brilliantly captured by Snuff / Therapy / PJ Harvey producer Head and featuring live favourites "Anniversary" and "Distance Over Time". It is further proof, if any was needed, that this Exeter post hardcore crew are amongst the leading lights of the nu-rock renaissance in this country there is no excuse - get it!!!!!!
Kids Near Water are kicking up a serious storm for such a new band. Formed in April 2000 from the remnants of two Exeter bands, Clinch and Cameron, they seem destined to surpass both of those bands easily with their intense, tough brand of emo-core. This 5 track mini album is an ideal taster to get into a band that's real quality.
