Heroes And Villains – Plans In Motion(Independent)
Heroes And Villains are either named after the classic Beach Boys song, or just assorted goodies and baddies. After a couple of spins of their four track EP I’m still not certain. They’ve definitely got the tunes, though their approach is thoroughly contemporary, with plentiful nods to modern arena fillers like The Killers. Keyboards and guitars lay down the core sound, with Ryan Wallace’s vocals providing counter melodies and plenty of hooks. All four tracks are individually first rate (there shouldn’t ever be any filler on an EP), and apart from it all being over far too quickly it’s difficult to find fault.
