EP Review: Stand Alone – Falling, Faster (Self Released)

Released on November 30th 2018, Falling, Faster is the latest EP from Stand Alone.

They were formed in the Bradford/Leeds area of West Yorkshire in May 2013 after the breakup of their other bands. The three members; Gavin Stevenson (Guitars, Piano, Lead Vocals) Luke Harrison (Bass, Vocals) and Tom Durrans (Drums, Vocals) teamed up as they shared the same vision musically.

Unapologetically powerful, charismatic and tightly presented, ‘Stand Alone’ combine the driven, heavy rock influences of Biffy Clyro and Alter Bridge with outstanding musicianship, soaring melodies and close harmonies influenced by The Beatles and other close harmony groups.

Stand Alone 2

A hard rocking trio, Stand Alone will surely turn a few more heads their way after hearing this four-track EP. Kicking off with the Muse-esqe harmony of Save You but with a much deeper rock groove. It’s a catchy start, one with more layers then you might initially expect.

Never Stand Alone and Repose En Paix come next and follow that with more of the same. The former has an absolute killer chorus while the latter is all about deep guitar licks. There’s this really inventive violin use right near the end of Repose En Paix that slips effortlessly into a wicked guitar solo. A hell of a duo that gets the body moving.

Finally 616 wraps the EP up with guitarist Dave Brons lending his talents to give a really exciting track some extra edge. A wonderful mix of melodic vocals and complex guitar riffs. Impressive and an addictive listen.
