Expatriate

Expatriate - The Spaces Between

Either by coincidence or by destiny, countless bands are poised to unleash new albums in the coming months. I don’t know whether to look forward to it or dread the ensuing task of reviewing it all. Who am I kidding? It will be great. Amongst these bands are many local Aussies ready to release their debut album. I’ve already mentioned Red Riders and British India and Expatriate are yet another. I’m yet to have the chance of seeing them live but their EP, ‘Lovers le Strange’ is promising to say least.

Of the 5 songs on the EP I’ve listened to three in detail and all I like. But there is one song, this one, that I truly love. It is just so well-rounded and pleasant that it never gets old. From the opening riff to the uplifting chorus it has quality written all over it. If this is any sort of indication, the album should be great. Be sure to keep an eye out for Expatriate.

First time I saw them live I thought they were cool and I bought that EP. Second time I saw them headline their own show and I swear they were on speed he kept talking shit and thought they were cool and I've hated them since.

yeh i've heard rather mixed opinion of their live act. So far the tally sits at two strong dislikes one strong like and one mild like. I really can't input until i've seen them myself, I'm hoping that will be rather soon
