EP Review... Get People - Rain Tears EP

Picking up where last year’s Careless/Odyssey double A-side left off, Get People’s sophomore EP release Rain Tears is another slice of infectious, intelligent pop music. Rain Tears will be released on Friends vs Records on July 11th 2011.

Rain Tears:
Starts off with a strong tribal feel to it, technical drumming follows and the vocals come in over the top, lots of cool effects are used in the track throughout it. One bit of the track I like is when it drops at 1.02 then the song really starts to bounce with a superb drum sample that is verging on dub. This is a great opening track to say the least

Away: Starts off with a more traditional feel, with a Guitar and the Drums, but still with that weird electronic madness Get People are known for. The vocal effects on this track are second to none. But one thing that gets this track for me is the chorus. "You couldn't disappoint me more, you lay yourself out to be tall, the body's lost and so's the war, away, away". That alone raises the track, but one thing that makes this track even better is how the track drops and then creeps back into life after a break of Tropical and Tribal sounds.

Lonely Game:
The slow track on the EP, but this doesn't mean it's the worst, not by a long shot. The calming melodies and 'gentle on the ears' synths and keys just lull you into an amazing song! A child's nursery rhyme is mentioned in the chorus "Rain rain go away" but I love them for that, bringing something of the familiar into a brand new light.

Guitars and wooing greet us into this track. But unlike the others the guitar stays for a bit more, I've said this before but the strange samples of glass breaking, rain drops and what sounds like birds tweeting are used to great effect. This is the closes they have verged into dub-step, but if you whack your speakers up I am sure you will be able to hear it, it's a fast track that I would love to hear live.
