EP Review - Lapush

“Write your names in the stars, I am trying to heal your heart” are neither the first nor the last lyrics of beauty to leave the lips of Lapush vocalist, Thom Donavon.

Hailing from St Louis, Lapush’s American influences are exuded effortlessly from their EP but not in such a way they appear mimicked or forced. Sounding like a more youthful Goo Goo Dolls at times, with leanings towards Tom Delonge, of Angels and Airwaves, sounding vocals.

With ‘Closer’ as their potential next single, Lapush’s distinguished sound is reminiscent of the likes of Primal Scream and its memorable tune refuses to let your brain forget it.

Lapush’s thought provoking and raw lyrics are instantly endearing on tracks like ‘Sticking Around’ and ‘Aurora’ and when combined their country rock preferences, the three piece have created a classic sound that emanates potential longevity and is likely to continue to establish them a loyal fanbase.
