Catchy anthems backed by gravelly vocals and a reassuringly familiar old school feel forces you to sit up and take notice of Cain Marko's new EP. The band has perfected the art of producing rousing, pop-punk tunes. All four tracks on the EP are brilliantly melodic and catchy with gang vocals popping up often, meaning you just have to sing along with them.

Ok, so pop-punk bands are not few and far between, but Cain Marko have such an addictive sound, such passionate vocals with honest, knowing lyrics and such a raw edge that you easily get caught up in the excitement of the moment each time you listen. Relentless drums and the addition of some nice quirky guitar along with those strong, gruff vocals make this EP a keeper and one that stands out from the stacks of other similar records we receive here at R13.
