Moe Green’s Eye begin their Fast Radio Burst Live EP with Fixed, a powerful pop/rock track that touches upon a wide swath of influences. During this first salvo, there are hints of Fuel, Modern English, and just a bit of the jam-band scene. The instrumentation during Fixed is top-notch, with each guitar line, bass arrangement, and spot-on drum adding to the full-sounding composition. The dynamic between each of these elements stands up to repeat plays, with a certain complexity that rewards listeners for continuing to focus in even five or ten plays after their initial introduction. This sort of cohesion is continued with Stay; the unique sound of the vocals does a tremendous job in distinguishing Moe Green’s Eye from the rest of the bands currently performing. The supersonic chorus during Stay represents a highwater line for the band on this release, as does the stop-start sound of the guitars/drums that denotes a bit of a change at the minute mark.
Its Over Now keeps things fun and fresh. There is slower, more intricate tempo taken by Moe Green’s Eye that allows both t he instrumentation and the vocals to shine. Particular kudos have to be given to the guitars here, as they add considerably to the repertoire of the band.
What About Time is the final effort on this extended play, giving the guitars and drums ample opportunity at the beginning to shine. The track puts a bow on this release, with some of the most fun arrangements we’ve heard from Moe Green’s Eye. The Fast Radio Burst Live EP is a rare experience in that few bands are able to create such a cogent sound in a smaller amount of tracks.
