Review – Waterfront Fire

By: Amanda Hather

Album – Waterfront Fire EP
Bandcamp Link: http://waterfrontfire.bandcamp.com/
Release Date – March 7th, 2014
Genre – Alternative Rock

Waterfront Fire is a six piece band from St. John’s, Newfoundland. Their self-titled EP, released in early March 2014, is a short but sweet five song recording. The slower pace of their music is present throughout the entirety of the EP, making it very easy to listen to.

All of the songs have a very similar sound to them, making it hard to pick one that I prefer over the others. “Lifeless Acts” and “Whispers In The Woods” are two of the songs that you should definitely check out if you’re interested in the EP. Personally, in their song “Relax” I hear elements that resemble Canadian band from the 80s, Payolas, hit song “Eyes Of A Stranger”, in the background music, which was a pleasant surprise.

All in all, the EP is worth checking out. Chances are there will be some element of their music that will entice you into listening to more.

Rating: 3/5

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
