"Help Me Breath" CDR single
Genres: pop/rock, pop, indie pop
Sep 8 - 14 2003
three-song EP, Help Me Breathe, is a brief sample of what the
British pop trio have to offer - simple, catchy music for alternative
pop/rock lovers. Their glossy, clean sound is rich in pop hooks and
smooth melody. The only problems are that they are sticking to the
norm stylistically and that their music becomes quite repetitive over
"Help Me Breathe" and "80s Aryan Lover" are
run-of-the-mill rock/pop tunes (the latter song is somewhat ska-influenced
in rhythm and sound), but both repeat short, uninteresting choruses
too much as they reach their final minutes. With that said, both tunes
are very catchy ditties that you may find yourself humming later on.
"If You Want Me In," the final track, is Help Me Breathe's
slower, more emotional tune. It is pleasant but can be quickly
forgotten due to its understated nature.
Overall, Munkster's Help Me Breathe EP is a solid
disc that hints at a strong future for the band, who have yet to
record their debut full-length.
