Kilmore 'City Lights' (EP stream)

Kilmore 'City Lights' (EP stream)
Halifax's Kilmore list their genre on Facebook as "riff rock," and the band's new EP certainly lives up to that description. Here at Exclaim!, we've got the premiere of that five-song collection.

The opening title cut begins City Lights with brawny, distorted guitar licks, steadily pounding drums and wailing vocals akin to classic rock radio. This sets the tone for the four-piece's muscular sound, as tracks like "Rising Sun" and "Weight of the World" are similarly stuffed with meaty riffage, while "Peace of Mind" is slightly more restrained and slow-burning. The curveball is "Younger Years," which ventures into a folk rock direction with its acoustic strums.

The EP was recorded with Erien Eady-Ward at Halifax's Codapop Studios. Scroll past the band's Canadian tour schedule below to listen to it in full before it arrives on June 5.
