Syrup, Go On – ‘Joyful Hesitation’

Introducing Syrup, Go On and their fresh EP ‘Joyful Hesitation’ (available now)! The Gold Coast band deliver a mix of melodic noise pop, shoegaze and angular post-punk. Syrup, Go On have actually been at it for several years now (formerly known as Young Pros) and hail from the same state that is responsible for Deafcult, Kigo, Roku Music, Nite Fields and Forevr. Syrup, Go On started as duo (featuring Tom and Kris Briese) before fluctuating into a five piece. ‘Joyful Hesitation’ is an explosion of bright melodies against a wall of noise. Opener ‘Mantaray’ is instantly catchy, the title track is an impressive slow burner, whereas the final two tracks mix in male vocals. ‘Waco’ (which runs at 6 minutes) is less pop-focussed, and demonstrates a more progressive spirit which is appreciated after the short and sharp start to the EP. It’s an exciting listen, jump in!
