“Rise” is a very short and powerful track. This one definitely works with the punk / hardcore influence of the band. The sound reminds of early 90’s garage rock, while there’s also a slight psychedelic touch on the song’s chorus. The track is pushing and works like a perfect wake-up call to start your day! It’s only 1:30 minutes long, so we get a “full single-length” with the following “Wasting Light”. This song sounds way more like alternative rock with a light pop-punk touch. The vocals even remind on Mastodon with the very earthy guitar sound in the background. Similar to “Rise”, “Wasting Light” also has a catchy chorus hook and is a short experience of only two minutes.
