Instigated by Ben Morgan’s sleepy, reverb-soaked picking, “Empty Mansions” recalls the insistent simmer of early grunge, with frontman Matt Crumpton’s somber tenor offsetting splashy strumming. All of this is bolstered by the rock-solid bass lines of Ross Swinson, who also handled the record’s production. “Daphne” follows suit, with Charley Potter’s punchy rhythms adding vigor to the song’s overdriven analog warmth, accented by tasteful keyboard breaks and a smoothly sustaining solo from lead guitarist Jeremiah Negron. Crumpton’s syncopated lyrics follow the drummer’s lead, maintaining the band’s tight cohesion.
The ever increasing tension is dispersed fluidly during the album’s next two offerings. “Windover’s Reckoning” ratchets distortion across its four minutes, while “Ten to Infinity (Or the Rest of Our Lives)” cascades skillfully into “Old Happy (So It Goes), the album’s sober epilogue.
With its patient build and rich textures, the EP reads like a graphic novel. The eager quintet utilizes each of its instruments with deft insistence, wholly aware of the role each part plays in the album’s bigger picture. This impassioned approach allows Two Fell’s first studio creation to hold together remarkably well, displaying a knack for songcraft and arrangement that should serve the band well should it move onto bigger releases.
