Erik & The Worldly Savages’ new EP, FUTURE THUNDER VOID, blends a mix of punk and acoustic rock.
While the first two tracks “THUNDER in our hearts” and “Embrace the VOID” are passionate, there’s a drama to them that makes it hard to take the tracks too seriously which, to be fair, is favorably reminiscent of Tenacious D.
But the rest of the six-track project makes up for it. “Always” sounds like the ending of a cowboy film — which makes sense as Erik, who provides the vocals and guitar, said the EP “describes the different sensations and feelings of a nomadic life in a modern world.” The chorus in this song really stands out and is done well. Similarly, “Scarcity” is a standout with heavy horns that make it sound like a fun track that’s reminiscent of the music of one of the countries they spent time in creating this project in — Mexico. (The project was also written in Thailand).
“Letter back home” and “FUTURE” are also enjoyable.
