Their brand od melodic punk rock goes down very well, with opener, the sterling ‘Fall’ is understandably hook, early bars filled with statement of intent riff wise, courtesy of Uirá Medeiros and Pedro Marques, who also [provide healthy vocals, the South American band is completed with Victor Berretta on Drums and bassist Alex Ritter, Collectively they represents a successful formula, add belief and passion and you’re half way there. Songs like ‘Pollution’ and ‘Jack’ may prove that this 4-piece are in-form and can deliver in good style; it’s songs such as ‘Rain feat Koala and ’Slow Trip’ show early signs of mission creep, but you know End Of Pipe’s heart remains in the right place. The EP holds a finale of sorts with crowd fave ‘Keep Running’ which is suitably king-sized, with more dynamics and passion than a thousand boy bands. side swipes aside, the ‘Keep Running’ EP works, effective and rousing. As a result End of Pipe have elevated their overall standing, at least with us, like wow. 8/10
