This album is neither a step forward nor a step backwards for Interpol- it’s more of cautious sidestep to allow the band to reassess their position in today’s alternative music scene. It adheres to their renowned post-punk style, but its sprawling, dark compositions often lack the infectious hooks that made their previous albums memorable. It’s trademark Interpol for sure, but in contrast with previous achievements, it falls short of its effort to epitomize the best elements of the band.

This EP shows that I Call Fives have the song writing ability and potential to be one of the biggest and best bands in the pop punk genre today. If the band can produce a full-length of the same quality, there will be absolutely nothing stopping them from reaching the stars.

Listening to this EP several times, I am able to say with confidence that In This Defence are one of the new breed of Australian Hardcore/Rock bands that are destined to change the current Australian music scene.
Their recorded music is nothing to the energy and power that they convey as a group when seen on a live stage. I would highly recommend everyone give this EP a spin.
In This Defence are undeniably here to stay.
