Forever Can Wait - Beauty & Grace EP Review




Forever Can Wait are a Female Fronted Hard Rock / Post Hardcore band from Southampton who burst on the hard rock scene in October 2009. This is a review of their new Ep, Beauty & Grace(8).

The first thing noticeable on the opening track, "Beauty & Grace" is the depth of the guitars before lead singer, Tash’s vocals cut perfectly through the mix. The sound is heavy but not overwhelming; complimenting her higher vocal range. The guitars chug away with crashing drums creating a surreal, dream-like soundscape.
The next track, “P & Q” has a more up-tempo feel; with a humongous driving riff and catchy chorus.  "Rest" showcases a beast of a bass line, with alternating male shouted vocals and female sung vocals providing light and dark to the track.

The whole EP slows down for a minute long piano-based interlude, before returning for the soaring melodies of “Excuses” a track which slowly builds. The EP ends on “Hope & Dreams” a straight-forward hard rock song with addictive funky guitar work, leaving the listener wanting more.

Forever Can Wait have proven with this EP that they can write catchy hooks and memorable riffs, and that they are an exciting new talent.  They are a must listen for any fans of Tonight Alive, Paramore, Anavae and Evarose.

Beauty and Grace is released 27th November 2013.
