EP Review: Rams' Pocket Radio - 1 + 2

Rams' Pocket Radio is this week's Play Irish artist with the song '1+2' taken from the new EP of the same name to be released in March 2012. The titled track deserves to be the Play Irish track this week as daytime radio is the best fit for the song!

This EP '1 + 2' is going to be the forth EP release from Rams' Pocket Radio. Each release from Rams' comes with more exposure and an increase in the fan-base which results in getting the recent Snow Patrol support slots! Rams' Pocket Radio is the musical vehicle for Drummer, Pianist and song-writer Peter McCauley from Lisburn and there's a really good chance he'll be making hit records for years to come!

'1 + 2' is a rocking radio friendly piano driven power ballad that is destined to be placed on some future 'Dads Rocks' compilation album between 'Yellow' and 'Run'! It's simply got to be a massive hit! Sure have a listen now before BBC Radio 1, 2FM and Spin makes ya hate it from playing too much!

I made the point that this is Rams' 4th EP so it's no surprise that the other three tracks on the EP don't live up to the '1 + 2'. There's a lovely 80s synth feel to 'Body and the Sea' which showcases Peter's fine vocals. The experimental electronic pop of 'Swallow' does nothing to me while the EP closer 'Love is a Bitter Thing' is a bittersweet piano ballad which closes the EP nicely.

On this evidence Rams' Pocket Radio is gonna be massive!
