‘Be Nice’ represents the first of two interlinked EPs, with the second to follow later this year. ‘Be Nice’ opens with the grunge meets power-pop slacker anthem ‘Owning Your Okayness’ which was picked as Daniel P Carter’s Rockest Record at Radio 1, while the second track ‘Prism’ captures their punchy mix of attitude, melody and aggression. That energy continued unabated in ‘Fight Skirt’ which features Blomfield’s snarling vocals pitched against Billy Hutton’s frenetic shouts as its rushes to an intense conclusion.
The EP comes to a surprising conclusion with the final track ‘Hibernate’ which stands out as being completely different from anything else from the band’s discography. Accompanied by plaintive guitar, Blomfield’s voice cracks with vulnerability and emotional turmoil as she delivers confessional lines such as “I won’t bear the guilt of giving up or be the one who’s not enough / Don’t let me fuck it up” before the band erupt into a final cathartic wall of sound.
