While the eyes of the world might be elsewhere with regards to record releases on November 19th, we’re sure even Adele wouldn’t begrudge you giving Gold Streets by My Everest a listen. The South-East rock outfit’s sophomore EP might be a little less of an emotional rollercoaster than 30, but it’s still quite the ride.
‘Hold On’ sinks its melodic hooks deep, with a plethora of heavy riffs contrasting a sentimental, softer centre. It’s one for both the fist-pumpers and the mosh-pit jumpers. Showcasing the different facets to My Everest, this track is a great representation of what this band are all about.
The energetic and uplifting ‘Borders’ is bursting at the seams with feeling, mellow but singing with real meaning. Frontman Connor Sturt’s vocals add another smooth layer to a song that is already silk-like. ‘Every River’ continues this vibe on the record, with an uplifting spring in its step and a relatable lump in its throat.
‘Gold Streets’ is a rock track with rhythm, highlighting yet again the polished and refined nature of their efforts, but this time with a little grit thrown in for good measure. Its chorus is typically anthemic for the five-piece, befitting of a crowd singing along with their hands held aloft.
Gold Streets sees My Everest deliver four polished rock songs with heart, rich with emotion from the very start. It’s a record that is a fun, effortless and easy-listening experience, which feels befitting of a band that seems like they’re just having the best time doing what they’re doing.
