Single & EP reviews: THE JADE ASSEMBLY, THE ELATION

THE JADE ASSEMBLY Nothing Changes

THE JADE ASSEMBLY Nothing Changes [Release date 04.05.18]

The Jade Assembly are a four piece hailing from Bolton consisting of John Foster (vocals & guitar), Gareth Smedley (lead guitar), Andy Watson (drums)  and Danny Hayes (bass). They have been creating a bit of a stir in the north west (with fans including the current Mayor of Manchester!) and their new song ‘Nothing Changes’ is a proper guitar led anthem with an impassioned vocal from John Foster. Modern rock with a decent bit of guitar and melody. More of this please! ****

THE ELATION Click Bait [Release date 01.06.18]

The Elation hail from Cork, Ireland and this is a four song EP, drawing together songs they have been working on and released since 2017. They may be a little too poppy/dance orientated for some rock fans, however listen carefully and you can hear their musical influences come through, be it a U2 approved guitar on ‘Catch’ or the funky RHCP start to ‘XO’. They will certainly appeal to fans of latter day Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco, plus the dance beats and soothing vocals will prove a hit with a younger crowd. No denying though that the Elation have the songs and talent to impress. ***1/2
