Traveling Rough Terrain...

Decasia - Decasia EP (2015)


This EP marks the first full release from France's trio of Decasia, and through the 30+ minutes of heavy, jammy, and heated grooves, the band gets cracking with memorably cool style.  Playing with a good amount of familiarity, but with enough roughness to keep their desert/stoner style sounding authentic, the group rides through the songs at high and low speeds, knotting together cool stretches of twisting highway music while showing the ways in which they might grow on future releases.  They infuse the old combo of bass/drums/guitar & vocals with some fire of their own, and the results are ideal for playing at high volume to while away the last days of summer.  There's a little bit of Red Hot Chili Peppers flavor to the last track, "Dive", but the ratio of that to the rougher stuff is at the right level to keep it enjoyable.  All in all, definitely one for fans of desert and stoner rock to load into their ears and stay tuned for more.
