The Two Boys Alright demo and follow up EP showed signs of promise without being consistently good. This has been put right here. 'Possessed' is a fantastic opener, with the fuzzy guitar and Clay Parton's vocals really hitting home and reminding just how good he is at making music. I should add that Yni Kifle is also in the band and plays his part. The riff that plays out the song is perfect. This leads into 'Into Orbit', a simple affair with a repetitive nature that occasionally diverts into a beautiful and more melodic passage where Clay sings 'come with me... into orbit', reminiscent of both Duster and Breasts.

'Hazy Realms' feels like an interlude, as does the song after to be honest, but then the fantastic 'Made of Hair' returns. What a song. 'Cosmodrome' ends the EP in short but sweet fashion. The organ pedals are in full effect here. Overall, a great EP.
