The Swedish indie-rock band Firstborn released the EP Naked & Exposed: Chapter I: Dividualism yesterday.
The almost title track of the EP – Naked & Exposed which is the second of the five – is a natural extension and evolution to the sound of a band who first featured back in 2012.
Line-up changes with only the vocal and guitar of Marcus Carlzon and Joachim Ragnarsson respectively being part of the original quartet has seen the, sometimes quartet sometimes quintet, evolve from roots steeped in heavy-metal to their current fulcrum of a maturity of indie-rock without ever alienating the audience as the originating influences remain branded in to the essence of the songs.
Firstborn are currently on a six nation European tour, with another nine nights remaining, in support of the LP and if you are anywhere near, I recommend finding some time in your diary.
