Go:Audio - Woodchuck EP

Whilst this band may struggle to appeal to music fans old enough to drink in pubs without fear of being ruthlessly ID checked, there is enough potential here to stave off the musical bargain bin for a long while yet.

Go:Audio - Woodchuck EP

After relentless touring alongside the likes of Hellogoodbye and The Blackout (well until one of them seriously injured themselves onstage), the London indie/emo/pop punksters Go:Audioare finally ready to unleash the first fruits of their labour.

In good old-fashioned tradition there are four tracks showcased on this release, spearheaded by the insanely catchy title track that blends the best bits of emo godfathers Jimmy Eat World and chief vocoder fiends Hellogoodbye. The next brace of tracks zip past without raising so much as an eyebrow, though EP closer 'Doesn't Really Matter' turns the tempo down into near ballad territory, whilst adding a sprinkling of sugar coated electro production shimmer, to round of proceedings nicely.
