Powdered Cows -Make My Miami EP (Review)

Powdered Cows new EP Make My Miami review

Hailing from sunny Bournemouth Powdered Cows are a four-piece and have have started to make some noise down south. They name check Blur, British Sea Power and The Cure as strong influences and this band are a band who wear their influences on their sleeves.

Led by Martin Roberts ( former member of the legendary Bournemouth band Betika) , Powdered Cows’ new EP  Make My Miami is the sound of a band making their way. Each of the six songs on offer are all solid well-crafted tracks, but apart from Roberts’ vocal ( part Graham Coxon, part Robert Smith) it’s very hard to not expect to hear the singer of the artist that each song is heavily borrowing from. Maybe to younger ears that wouldn’t be so much of a problem, but any fan of the genre will be playing a ‘guess who?’ game whilst listening .  This isn’t supposed to say that Make My Miami should be dismissed as the production is very impressive  and ‘Brain Freeze‘ and opening track ‘Monsters Of Revelation‘  are instantly likable and surely live favourites.

As its early days in the band’s history they should be given time to hone their own sense of purpose and find their reason to exist in the world. Many bands start off by ripping of their heroes before finding their feet. Hey even David Bowie took about four albums to find who he was and even then he wasn’t satisfied until his chameleon career took off. There are enough foundations here for Powdered Cows to find their voice and grab the music industry ladder by the horns.
