"The Adeen EP" CDEP
Genres: indie rock, rock
Checking in at just over thirty minutes, this is a
pretty long EP (especially considering it only houses five tracks),
but more music is nothing to complain about. Thaelo, led by
frontwoman Darcy Hudelson, play gradual, grungy rock music not
far off from mid-90s wonders The Cranberries - except with
longer, less immediately catchy songs. Bettie Serveert also
comes to mind, especially on the meandering yet climactic "Oklahoma."
At times the disc borders on irritating (the shrill peaks of "Dayview")
but for the most part it's just standard, successful grungy rock.
Don't expect the world, but if you liked The Cranberries or
Bettie Serveert this is worth a listen.
