EP Review: InAir – Dreamful (Self Released)

Brit Alt Rock trio InAir come at you from the south of England and combine a wide range of influences lifted from across the rock and metal spectrum.

The band made their mark when they delivered their debut EP, A Different Light, in November 2017 to glowing acclaim. The engaging alt rockers have supported everyone from Arcane Roots, Defences, Chasing Cadence, Junior, Veridian and From Inside to Death Remains.

Further successful live shows ensued, followed by work on the band’s new EP, Dreamful. Out on September 13th 2019.

The band remark about the release:

‘Dreamful’ is once again recorded and produced by Simon Jackman. The EP is a journey of our experiences with depression, addressing various aspects of our experiences both negative and positive. It’s a celebration of being able to overcome one’s inner demons.

Rich and dark, InAir are an alternative sounding rock band but with a little more bite to their bark. Opener Control showcases a powerful performance from all the instruments but in particular the vocals. It’s those that add some realness to the sorrowfulness.

Chemicals’ has these sharpened bursts of guitars and percussion punctuating the vocals. While utilising some fantastic effects to add depth and emotion to the track. This is something InAir excel at and continues into Talk to You although this is also their heaviest track. As a unit they really push themselves here and it is so very good.

Even the dourness of Regress is pretty enjoyable, the guitar tones lower and darker. It’s not a feel good track even though the overall EP theme is positive and about overcoming demons. That is certainly felt with the melodic finale of Life Finds A Way.
