EP: Fast Radio Bursts Live
While innovative individuals often experience a wide range of diverse and unique emotions, the underlying pain and joy that motivates them in their creative process usually connects them to their audience in a stunningly relatable way. That’s certainly the case with the New York City-based rock band, Moe Green’s Eye, whose name references a character from ‘The Godfather’ movie series who meets an unfortunate end. The musical quartet’s has recently released its stunning debut EP, ‘Fast Radio Bursts Live,’ which was recorded during one of their performances. The alternative album comprises of four tracks that intriguingly fuse the group members’ love of classic rock with 80’s new wave influences, and isn’t afraid to highlight their unprecedented opinions on passionate and turbulent relationships.
Moe Green’s Eye first showcases its talents with ‘Fast Radio Bursts Live’s first entry and single, ‘Fixed,’ which mainly thrives through its rhythmic vocals and instrumentals. Grippingly supported by introductory guitar riffs that pay tribute to bands like The Cure, and perfectly timed drum beats, lead singer Anthony Galati’s captivating ’80s and early ’90s rock-inspired vocals powerfully set the tone for the record. Also influenced by the New Wave sound, the band’s distinctive lead song powerfully explores the evolution of relationships. The vocalist compelling admits that the longer a relationship lasts, the less he knows what the future holds for it, and what will happen if he can help the other person he cares so much about change.
‘Fixed’ then transitions into the rock quartet’s best track on their new EP, which is titled ‘Stay.’ The second tune, which is more upbeat than its predecessor, explores the process of improving a questionable relationship. The entry, which continues Moe Green’s Eye’s devotion to classic rock and alternative guitar riffs, features a catchier melody and fierce vocal presence by Galati. The singer emotionally croons about not being able to tolerate games that people play in their relationships, especially since he doesn’t know how they feel. Despite its rock vibe, the track is still relatable, as Galati echoes the common sentiment that people give up on getting to know others when they shut off their emotions.
The rock group’s debut album then morphs into its third tune, ‘It’s Over Now.’ The high quality entry, whose guitar riffs and vocals once again take their cues from the 80’s progressive sound, proves the diversity that Moe’s Green Eye can effortlessly take on its distinct songs. The rock-inspired track features Galati maturely admitting that he’s older and wiser now. The singer also confesses that he knows he’ll make it on his own without the person he used to miss, who he knows won’t be returning to his life.
‘Fast Radio Bursts Live’ ends with the powerful guitar-driven track, ‘What About Time.’ While the tune will surely split the opinions of the band’s fans, as it doesn’t feature the same rock and alternative beats as their previous tunes, the fourth entry does have its own powerful merits. The guitar riffs and drum beats feature compelling commercial and progressive rock notes, which give the entry a soulful and emotional depth. But while Galati once again reflects on the memories of a past relationship that he’s trying to move past, the lyrics aren’t as complex and vulnerable as the group’s earlier song on the record.
While visionary individuals often experience a wide range of diverse and unique emotions, the underlying pain and joy that motivates them in their creative process usually connects them to their audience in a stunningly relatable way. That’s certainly the case with Moe Green’s Eye new EP, ‘Fast Radio Bursts Live,’ which intriguingly fuses the members’ love of classic rock with 80’s new wave influences. The quartet is destined to achieve fame, as its members aren’t afraid to highlight their unprecedented opinions on passionate and turbulent relationships.
