EP Review: wavebye - Sugar

Southampton alt-rockers wavebye take us back to the early 00s emo power punk days on debut EP, 'Sugar', with instantly relatable heart-on-sleeve lyrics.

Frontman Finlay Male's voice switches between the heavier higher-pitched style of US post-hardcore band Saosin and sugary pop-laced Cute Is What We Aim For.

wavebye essentially provide a nostalgia trip for fans of that period of music, aka the 'MySpace Days', when you would choose a profile song to match your emotions.

The four-piece - formerly known as Faux - bloom on closing track 'This Is Love', with stunning melodic guitars and soaring vocals in perfect harmony.
