Three brothers Nathan, James and John Cox decided to form a band called Indecisive? The band is still in the embryonic stage of their development but on their self-titled EP Indecisive? play three-chord style rock n’ roll for the most part whether it veers towards punk, metal or alternative,
The band at this point doesn’t quite have a signature sound and they wear their influences on their sleeves. They open with “Don't Buy Into The Idea Of Continuity” which revolves around a couple of distorted power chords, distorted vocals and driving bass and drums. It’s an adrenaline pumping punk song.
Up next is “Undertaker” which again revolves around basic major and minor chords but veers more towards grunge. The hooks are far and In between and it sounded like one of my favorite Nirvana songs entitled "Aneurysm" at points.
"Pastor Bedtime" mixes grunge with what sounds like early Tool. The vocalist throws in a couple of demon-like growls. "Meat" sounds like another Nirvana inspired tune with the best bass line on the album while "Iron Cage" fits more into the ’90s alternative pop category. They close with "Obsolete Rotation" which is noticeably softer than the other tracks.
On the band's Bandcamp page they mention that the album was an experiment to discover the music they want to play. That's how the songs felt to me. More than anything if they are serious about music they are going to have to dig a little deeper to figure how they can stick out from the crowd. At this point they sound like a typical garage band influenced by ’90s music. The other thing is the timing. It may seem marginal but getting noticeably off time is the difference between pros and amateurs.
I hope the band takes their first album as a stepping stone to greater things. They show some potential and inspired moments and fall in a category of wait and see for now.
