Seattle Met Magazine – “East” Review (Album of the Month)

Not News | Press

There’s confidence and then there’s opening an album with an extended guitar solo confidence. The latter reeks of false bravado, but Seattle’s the Trouble Starts manages to pull it off without coming off as insufferable on East, the group’s new EP. In fact, a sense of subtlety pervades across the six songs and their mixed palate of alt-rock…  While the Trouble Starts never settles on a sound on East, the grab bag the band offers up is plenty satisfying.
