Screech Bats – ‘Wish You Were Her’ EP

April 6, 2018



Artist: Screech Bats
Release: Wish You Were Her EP
Genre: Punk Rock
Label: Self-released
Release date: March 30th,  2018
Verdict: 8/10




London-based punk rock quartet Screech Bats begun as a side project of Hearts Under Fire, but quickly found their own path, their own style, and fans. I didn't take long for them to overcome the stage of their "parent" band and take the faith into their own hands. In 2016 their released self-titled debut EP, but it's 'Wish You Were Her' that will give them the right push.


A bit darker and far more serious than the debut, Wish You Were Her' offers five songs filled with strength and energy. Although it's impossible not to think about The Distillers, especially after hearing Esme Baker's powerful voice, lyrically, Screech Bats maybe relay more on the acts like Alkaline Trio or Against Me!


Produced by James Routh of Sonic Boom Six, the EP successfully catches the live feel of their music, focusing on energy and emotion, rather than technical and playing skills. And when it comes to punk, it's all that matters. Wish You Were Her' is a good, serious release from a good band with a great potential. I can't shake off the feeling this is just the beginning.
