The Trouble Starts, a post-punk band from Seattle, returns with part two of their planned two EP release. Having released part 1, “East” back in August of 2013 they will be releasing part two entitled “West” on February 25th, putting six months between releases.
Beginning with “Faulkner” the five-song EP gets off to a roaring start with grunge-like guitars that slowly builds to the songs conclusion. The Trouble Starts hits a mainstream alternative rock vein with “Bird In The Water” that has a great guitar line that moves the song along. Their music shifts to a more mellow, melodic feel on “Alexandria,” before closing with the Coldplay-type remix of “Golden Silver” from their earlier EP.
