Humble Braggers has just released their second EP, Disposable Friends, picking up right where they left off in 2013 creating a local masterpiece. With a new-age alternative sound featuring heavily edited vocals along with synthesizers and light guitar bits, Humble Braggers have created something that can be enjoyed by anyone who has been following the progression of the alternative music landscape over the past several years.
The EP has 5 songs that flow together effortlessly throughout the entirety of the album. The best song on Disposable Friends is the first track, How It Starts. The catchy melody and upbeat vibe are what give the song its reasons for being the best on the EP. It starts out with a short but upbeat intro that lay the tone for the rest of the song. It then leads into a short verse that is interrupted by a brief instrumental break leading right into the first chorus. How It Starts is one of those songs that you can put on repeat and never get sick of, and it is by far one of the standout tracks that could be heard on the radio today and propel this band to fame.
Another great song is the song that named the EP, Disposable Friends. A well-written song with a complex timing pattern during the chorus ending with the lead singer’s voice carrying out into the catchy guitar lick is the perfect way to end the album showing the unique songwriting ability of this band. This band is one that will emerge and be a name that we will hear at events such as Kerfuffle or at the Canalside concert series. Keep an eye out for these guys.
