Blume Hinges – “We Float” [Diversion Records]

On this short EP, the mastermind behind Blume Hinges, Aaron Egeland debuts his ability to diversify his sound as an artist, with each song on the project sounding different from any before it. He shifts between an almost emo punk sound to soft acoustic in the blink of an eye, with only his distinct vocal delivery holding the project together as a cohesive whole. It is fast and aggressive at some points, and slow and subtle at others. Unfortunately, it is too short for the band to really come into their own, and they seem to be unsure of the style they want to go with through parts of the project. What this album lacks in length, it makes up for in diversity for better or for worse, and while it has some weaknesses, there is a lot to look forward to for any future projects that may be released.
