Halogens have released their self-titled EP and they sure know how to kick off 2016. This was the first EP I gave a listen to this year and I’m glad I did. They have the energy of The Front Bottoms and “Kitchen Sink” shows that off well while giving the EP a good jump start. The EP runs five songs long and is a perfect introduction to the band. It is by no means their first release, but this is the first release I’ve heard from them. The band’s releases date back to 2012. Halogens consists of great guitars, catchy lyrics, and is overall a fun listen. What more could you want in an EP? “Ayudamé!” is my favorite track on the release, but I suggest just starting at the top and listening the whole way through. It’ll be well worth your time.
