â€œIndestructibleâ€ showcases Play The Angel as an act that can shoot between rock, emo, punk, and hard rock in the course of just a few seconds. The act has a sound that is similar to what other bands have placed on the radio in the last few years, but Play The Angel look to increase the odds significantly. After listeners take in just one of the five cuts on the self-titled EP, they will begin to understand that Play The Angel is a better band, regardless of whether one looks at sheer ability, overall sound, or the authority that each member has in crafting their own distinct line here. â€œYou And Meâ€ is the track that will hammer home the fact that Play The Angel can make a track that pulls on listenersâ€™ heartstrings without seeming overly sappy or pitiful; Simple Plan they are not. The vocals here are smooth as butter, soaring over the track effortlessly.
The guitars, drums, and bass do not fade into the mists here; they join together to provide listeners with a unique experience. I personally have not heard much in the way of music that can be said to truly be revolutionary; I feel that â€œYou And Meâ€ will represent a blueprint for future music in much the same way that Creedâ€™s â€œMy Own Prisonâ€ set the stage for 2000s rock. â€œReady or Notâ€ ensures that Play The Angel will not paint themselves into a corner.
There is a sort of electronic present to this track that skirts them close to an MSI sound, but at no point does this new influence detract from the wonderfully unique sound that they have cultivated through this EP. â€œTears Are Fallingâ€ ties together a quick tempo with a funkiness that will attract fans of 3!OH3 or even A Skylit Drive. 5 tracks are all that is necessary for Play The Angel to showcase all of their skills; I have little doubt in my head that any upcoming full-lengths will simply have the act step up their game that much further.
