Italian band Mary’s Restless Dream have released their second EP two and a half years after their first. So, is it worth the wait? Opener Show Me The Way bursts out of the block with it’s fusion of shoegaze and 1990s alt-rock blowing cobwebs away left, right and centre. Sadly Love is one of those slower alt-rock tracks that drifts into epic ballad territory and doesn’t benefit these ears. Fortunately things get back on Cure my Disease which is a shouty guitar led indie rock anthem with a chorus to match. Final track 3 starts off slow but builds up before starting over again. The vocals are distinctive, as they are through out the EP, which gives the band another chance to embed themselves into your consciousness and thoughts. It’s enjoyable stuff, especially the opener, despite not being my my usual fare.
Your Pain Is Free is available digitally from the band.
