My Extraordinary marks the end of their extended absence with the release of the incredibly accomplished, anthemic mini-album The World We Live In.
It’s been two years since they released their ‘Reality’ EP and in that time, jobs have been quit, backline overhauled, home-studios constructed and new faces have been added and reshuffled within the ranks of the Newcastle five-piece.
Undoubtedly the biggest change has come in the shape of frontman Ant handing over his guitar duties to Roy, the newest member. In doing so Ant now solely handles vocal duties, which he credits for his finest vocal and lyrical outputs to-date.
On top of this, in M.E drummer Martin they also have a producer who understands explicitly how they want to convey their sound. Quitting his job, constructing a home studio and replenishing amps and guitars were seen as key elements in ensuring they would achieve the warmth and depth in tones they felt were previously lacking, and consequently the mini-album to exert them back onto the UK scene would emerge.
All of these factors have provided My Extraordinary with a new level of confidence that has allowed them to create a record they say would not have been possible three years ago due to a fear of public reaction. But now having matured as musicians they’re found in the idyllic position of writing purely for themselves and being content with their own approval.
Having recently played Groezrock the new era of My Extraordinary is underway, there’ll be no more hibernation periods, they are here to stay!
