Theme Park – Two Hours (EP Review)

Rating:

London based indie band Theme Park have announced the date of their new E.P release ‘Two Hours’. After playing support act to some pretty impressive bands, such as Two Door Cinema Club and in October, supporting Bloc Party on their hotly anticipated UK tour, it’s looking like they are going to attract much attention. They have already sold out a headlining show in London’s Hoxton Bar and Kitchen.

The forthcoming autumn release is also including three covers as well as their first single, also titled ‘Two Hours’. These include Jesse Wares ‘Wildest Moments’, The Nationals ‘Bloodbuz Ohio’ and Hot Chips’ ‘Ready for the Floor’. If they are anything like the single ‘Two Hours’ then the ears are definitely in for a treat. The song itself is like a little melodic pop beauty. There’s this sonic keyboard through it that just lifts your mood, even if the song itself is quite sombre. It’s the perfect balance you need in an indie pop song, a low key guitar strum and a catchy drum beat. The singer, Miles Haughton, coos through the song with such heartfelt emotion, but also gives the song a euphoric sort of feel when matched with the keyboard. It’s also been released at a perfect time as the video is of the band playing at a house party, and as the autumn months roll in we something to float around a house party to; this song is kind of it. If you were lucky enough to get a Bloc Party ticket then you’re in for a double whammy. Theme Park are getting a reputation for a great live show.
