Kingswood – Change of Heart Review

Melbournian four-piece Kingswood have arrived with their debut EP Change of Heart and are ready to punch you in the face with their brand of hard and fast rock. Influenced by Josh Homme and co., Change of Heart features loud, brash guitars, heavy bass lines and occasionally powerful vocals from front man Fergus Linacre. New single Medusa is a tale of an encounter of the titular mythical beast that starts with a screech Steven Tyler would be proud of and ends with a disturbingly catchy refrain of ‘I’ll cut off your head.’ First single Yeah Go Die is the highlight of the EP, with its driving bass and fist-pumping energy. The final two tracks of Change of Heart, Sun and an unnecessary acoustic version of Yeah Go Die, fail to build on the momentum from the first three tracks, but otherwise it is a very promising start for Kingswood.

3.5/5
