Inward Eye is a raucous, trashy power punk trio whose debut EP is reminiscent of The Clash, Green Day and even Ray Davies and the Kinks. The whole EP has the feel of the mid to late eighties punk scene when the Clash ruled the airwaves. The four song EP is chock full of gang vocals, catchy choruses and lots of gritty down and dirty guitar playing.
By far my favorite track of the four is “Now Is The Time”, which begins as a very good traditional punk tune but quickly morphs into a heavy guitar driven tune that is built around a mesmerizing riff.
While it is too early to tell if these guys have what it takes to make it in the business, (it is difficult to make that sort of judgment based off four songs) what I have heard here on this EP is quite impressive to say the least.
I think this disc is worth checking out and it would be a good idea to keep and eye on these guys; they are young ambitious and full of talent and if they continue to write such strong tunes they very well may become a household name in no time at all. [ END ]
