It’s all about evolution. It’s all about evolving. German band Chiefland definitely do this with their album Clarity. Pop punk influences soaring and the rock swaggers are well-integrated while blending with the sorrow that reveals its heart. The music doesn’t stop in any way, even though, the lyrics are soaked in sorrow.

The twisted games are discussed as hope begins to wane and the lyrics suggest imminent death. But, when seems like everything is shining and hopeful, darkness engulfs.

The struggle to escape the clutches of the past is not easy as the past begins to haunt the band. The EP is filled with melancholy as it strikes, crushing on each and every soul. The album is beautiful it’s dark, and the darkness is a part of every inch, even when the weight of the world is weighing down on our shoulders but there’s not a sweet sky.

The music was meticulously created with a profound understanding. The musicians are all aware of their strengths, and the large choruses and the profound lyrics are what make Clarity an exceptional EP.

The opening track, ‘Clarity’, is a blast with slick percussion and the vocals aren’t disjointed or off-kilter anytime. They shine when the chorus kicks in. Lyrically, it’s a brutal depiction.

“Superglue” is a song that follows the same line and the guitar awe is never ending, and the vocals are flawlessly executed. Love is broken here.

Your Escape’ seems more optimistic than previous songs However, the lyrics are still loaded with harsh views. The beat is slowed down and the chorus explodes with ferocity. This is a sad song that’s perfect in the execution.

In the end, Chiefland delivers a somewhat grim assessment of their world and lives. Although it’s dark it is still an enjoyable listen.
