Bundaberg 3 piece ET and the Alien have just released their debut EP Fallen Daughter and are busily preparing an assault on a thriving Brisbane music scene in the new year.
Fallen Daughter is a solid first offering from the young trio, with shades of early Kings of Leon poking through, as well as a bit of You Am I swagger and Radiohead-like moroseness across the four track EP.
Lead vocalist Justyn Russell seems to be struggling a little bit to find a consistent style, sometimes even within the same track, however overall, ET and the Alien should be commended for their dedication to keeping it simple and focusing their attentions on writing a solid melody. From Afar in particular is a track that whilst not groundbreaking musically, packs a mean hook and is a great little homage to Americana rock.
2015 is sure to be big one for the young 3 piece, and once they begin to find their own way stylistically, it could open the door to a world of potential.
ET and the Alien are celebrating the launch of the new EP at Bundaberg’s The Globe Hotel tomorrow night, December 20th, supported by Young Dingos.
