Cold Summer - A Time Imagination Forgot to Inspire
Turns out that the last week or so is all about me playing catch up on various emails I have received over the last month or so, this time we are looking at Leeds/Wakefield Post-hardcore band Cold Summer. They have been going since 2011 and have been making a post-hardcore noise that has seen them play shows with Funeral for A Friend, Milk Teeth, Polar and other bands. They have previously released two other EP's ('Cold Summer' & 'Transitions & Wake') and this song is the lead single from the forthcoming 'Fight to Survive' EP which will be released on 1st April 2016. So how does this song stand as an advertisement for the forthcoming EP?
"A Time Imagination Forgot to Inspire" is a post-hardcore song which starts off with a sense of urgency and determination. The lyrics are about not going with the crowd and being in a time where those that are admired are not the saints that people should be looking up to; it is about making up your own mind and not being afraid to be the one looking in the other direction. The riffs are tight, the hooks tight as a nut and the drums/bass combo is fantastic. It is a song that deserves to be heard and it does make me interest to what is going to come from the 'Fight to Survive' EP. Hopefully that will be out sooner rather than later.
4 out of five - This is really good, well worth checking out
