JOHNNY GET THE GUN are not strangers to me as I have played live on a couple of bills with them in 2010. They have always been a great live band and the NEVER FAR FROM WHAT WE KNOW EP shows that their sound translates well to the studio as well.

What we have here is 5 fantastic pop punk rock songs. The EP kicks off with an infectious bass line that continues throughout the song complemented by stabbing guitars and powerful vocals. Wayne's vocals are a swirling delight that take on shades of Matt Bellamy at times but he is by no means a plagarist, it's just testament to the power and range that he has.

The dynamics of the EP are great with some uptempo vibes before bringing it down and then going out with a bang at the end.

I have a sneaky feeling that these guys will be destined for bigger things (already confirmed for support with  Jody Has A Hitlist) so check them out and if you get a chance to see them live then please do as they are really good.
