From the beginning, Womb takes the listener to a dark dingy rock bar where the locals know that good rock music can be heard. Womb emulates a grungy rock sound with a slight influence from blues and perhaps even jazz. On EP, the opening track “Baby Don’t Love Me” starts off with a hard guitar bridge before the hypnotic backbeat starts that just keeps your head bobbing throughout the song. The lyrics “baby don’t love me, I swear to God if I find out there’s another man, I’ll make sure he burns in hell,” really stamps the vibe for the rest of the album. “Sicko Love” also starts off with an intense beat, but this one has more movement and the vocalist quickly jumps in to tell a story about a case of bad love.
The song “Irene” really has a devilish vibe to it; the vocalist manipulates his voice setting the scene for talking about this girl “Irene.” The drums are very strong on this track making it quite catchy. The last song on the album can really pull you into the groove. The guitar has an interesting fluctuation of only a couple of notes and the repetition really makes the song a toe-tapper. The vocals seem to just float melodically over the beat and the tone is super grungy while also sounding like classical rock.
This rock band out of Canada really has a unique sound all to themselves. They can be compared to several rock bands, but with their infusion of traditional rock from the early 20th century and the usage of blues tones, it sets Womb apart from others. Even though there are only four tracks on EP, the band is able to show their talent for both songwriting and production.
