come the spring reviveSpring has well and truly sprung, ladies and gentlemen. With it, comes a renewed sense of hope, of vitality, of things beginning anew, crawling out of the darkness, grabbing life by the balls and boldly marching forward into the light.


Or at least, it should.


If looking out the window doesn’t exactly inspire any of that stuff, then the appropriately-titled Revive from Brighton-based Come The Spring certainly will.


Like a blazing sun rising from the slumber over a majestic backdrop of foreboding mountains, Revive blossoms over six tracks of gloriously invigorating post hardcore that serves to light up even the most morose of souls.


With emotion dripping from every soaring riff and tortured vocal, an undeniable energy drives things forward, smashing through the bleak, somber intro of opener 24 and replacing it with the dominant bass line and uplifting guitars of tracks like recent single Memory and Resonance.


Yet to write this one off as all sunshine and good cheer is to do Revive, and it’s creators, a real injustice.


Though it’s probably impossible not to feel inspired by the EP, it’s equally as challenging to ignore the real sense of angst and aggression that roars and screams through every enormous riff and raging blast of drums.


It was Ernest Hemingway who said that there’s nothing more to writing than sitting down at a typewriter and bleeding. Replace the typewriter with a microphone and amplifier, and you start to get some idea of the writing process behind EP highlights like Homesick & Tired. You imagine the band strapping their souls to guitars and launching full bore into something epic, leaving nothing behind in the pursuit of creating songs that are every bit as raw as they are resplendent.


The unrelenting assault of aching vocals and scorching guitars does little to destroy this image, instead only adding a level of intensity as Revive roars out of the darkness to deliver a collection of songs that will probably do more to make you feel alive than even the arrival of spring itself.


The Revive EP by Come the Spring is out now on Engineer Records. For more information see:
