NYC outfit Me Not You have been well and truly on my radar. Their first single “Relief” remains undoubtedly the best offering on the EP, yet there are some other corkers mixed in there to make the overall selection well worth your time of day. The somewhat sinister vibes of ‘Relief‘ continue throughout and there’s no second-guessing of a fully-formed rebellious identity that’s not afraid to ruffle your hair despite repeated warnings. Opening track ‘Bulletproof‘ is the other real stand-out beauty here – with plenty of pop sensibilities mixing in with that intense alternative feel that keep the band from becoming a tiresome reboot. Each track has that same BIG feel with almost sheepish vocals singing with an understated confidence, keeping them from falling into the same of trap of trying to show off. At times the release undersells itself and the beats perhaps get a little too big. Yet the heart is there, the character is simply glowing and when those killer moments hit you just won’t know what to do with yourself.
