Let Me Run managed to get alot of recognition in 2009 very quickly. This maybe be because of their jersey roots and owing much in sound to one Gaslight Anthem. These things helped them gain alot of attention along with some touring and some very good songs. The songs were good but could notably use some work, as they never kept the power they seemed to deserve.
So onto 2010, in the interim the band lost some members notably their lead vocalist. For a band of this type it can definitely turn ugly. A band playing this style of music without the right voice leading it can fall flat on its face. Luckily I can say that Let Me Run found someone to fill the void quite well. The songs roll through at a rapid clip with their new singer leading the way. Each song bristles with frayed chords and nerves into wonderful sing-alongs. The band have come a long way from their uneven full length. This EP marks a new era in a band that nearly ended in the last year. I for one welcome the band back and hope this renewed vigor adds to the full length that deserves to come after this EP.
