It Lives, It Breathes – We Come In Numbers (EP)
Release Date: June 2013
Record Label: Unsigned
It Lives, It Breathes is an EDM (Electronic Dance Metal) band from Providence, Rhode Island. When was the last time you heard anything coming from Rhode Island, let alone anything good? Well, now you have. These guys have been together for a few years now, and how well put together they are, you’d think that they have been in the business for longer.
They are currently on tour with The Nearly Deads and for the west coast, The Animal In Me. I highly encourage you to go buy a ticket and see them live, talk to them, they stay after, hang out and just get to know these kick ass guys.
This EP is their second album, and it was recorded in one month with them as the producers, and it really shows how much they put into making this. They had a guest singer on here, and it was David Escamilla from Crown The Empire, which is a pretty great feat to have with a strong viral following (just under 30k on Facebook, 12k on Twitter and 2k subscribers to their YouTube).
My favorite song would be We Come In Numbers, because of the variety they had with everything. I personally couldn’t find Escamilla in this song, but then again, I’m not much of a CTE listener. The part that I really liked the most were the secluded vocals, it really brought that extra step into the song that was needed.
My least favorite was One More Night. I couldn’t apply the song into my everyday life, and it felt like a lot of chorus to me. I just feel as though it felt disjointed from the rest of the EP, as far as the lyrics go. The music itself was amazing.
Overall, this was an amazing EP. I loved the drums and the variety of vocals with the addition to the electronic-esque undertones. Not many bands can actually do that in all of their songs and have each one come out to where you know that it’s a different song.
I am giving this album a 4.5/5 stars because I really wished there were maybe two more songs. I didn’t want my experience to end. I am also giving this rating along with their live performance. They are amazing live, energetic, really interact with the crowd, and if you get a chance this month, please go see them!
I strongly push you to go listen and buy their album (on iTunes) if you enjoy Abandon All Ships, and according to Last.fm, One Last Look, I Am King and Claps For Caroline.
