If you love Paramore you’ll love Brisbane pop-rockers 10 Days Notice. Combining strong, sassy female vocals with catchy riffs and melodies that will get stuck in your head, their debut EP Through The Unknown is impressive.
Putting their best foot forward right from the start, the EP opens with first single Playing Pretend. If you listened to this song blind-folded, you’d be forgiven for mistaking the sweet yet attitude-laced vocals of lead singer Emily May for those of Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams. This track takes aim at toxic friends, and it slays in the most delectable way.
Under The Surface continues the fun, with a relatively fast pace, memorable hooks and vocals reminiscent of Killing Heidi. Lyrically, the song explores the frustration of having an unshakeable interest in someone who is impossibly hard to read.
Rounding out the EP is Freedom From Me which slows things down and shows a more vulnerable side of the band. Emily’s vocals on this track are particularly stunning, conveying the raw emotion of facing your issues head on.
Overall, 10 Days Notice have delivered three killer tracks on their debut record. There are no fillers on this EP – each song is well-crafted with crisp production. This is a high quality, radio-friendly record that fans of artists like Paramore, Killing Heidi and Evanescence should definitely give a spin!
