Speakermute is possibly going for a lo-fi Death Cab sound, but their jazzy drums and space-funk guitar bring to mind suburban 90s bar rock. The vocalist’s falsetto has a classic rock quality to it, and weird background vocal lines add a kind of creepy songs-from-the-wood element.
“Sound From Another Room” is a strong track, but has a bit too much pop sensibility, sounding like a messy compilation of Squeeze tunes. The rest of the EP reminds me of Queen’s “We Are The Champions.”
