The good times are back in rock n roll, if you can imagine such a thing. Members of Toronto’s Holy Fields have been around the musical block a few times, but still have the energy as if it’s their first time out and prove it on this self-titled five track EP. The music feels fresh and fun, and it explodes with the power pop dexterity of sweet melodies and more harmonies than you can shake a stick at. It’s all about good times here, as the lead-off track “Livin’ on Earth” clearly reminds us with the literal optimism as much as the big, catchy guitar lines that will have you humming along immediately and right through the remainder of the EP. It all may feel a bit innocent, but there are very few other things in life that will make you feel good about joyfully bouncing off the walls like this.
