'A Light That Blinds' EP Review:
The EP opens with 'Younger', a track that is reminiscent of Lucy Spraggan, but with a rockier guitar throughout. There's a catchy melody whilst the guitar is classic and punchy. 'Nightcrawling' is the lead single from the release, and on first listen you can tell why. It's an indie pop tune, with haunting vocals that grow into a memorable chorus that's bound to get you humming along. 'Last Time' takes the listener back to Saint Raymond's previous releases as it's a familiar sound, a slower, more stripped back track with even more vulnerable lyrics, showing rawness in his vocal ability. The EP closes with 'We Are Fire', another indie pop anthem, with a more simple melody, rounding the release off nicely. It's uplifting and provides the EP with a big finish! 'A Light That Blinds' is a euphoric EP that creates montage vibes, perfect for saying goodbye to the warm autumn days.
