What happened to guitar rock? somehow it fell out of style. Recently in Canada it seems like there are some bands fighting the good fight to bring it back and that’s why I think it’s appropriate that Uforia has named their new EP ‘Fight or Flight’ they’re in it to win it and you can hear that from onset of this record. The title track sets an aggressive pace and the guitar hooks sport shades of Finger Eleven who have fingerprints on this band with drummer Steve Molella taking a production role and guitar player James Black directing their upcoming music video. The moody ‘Wake Me’ is a personal favourite with it’s slow swoon and wall of guitar chorus and layered vocal harmonies. The last cut of the EP ‘Is Anybody Living?’ features a great Slash-esque sounding guitar wail and a chorus that drives you an open highway with the windows down headed to parts unknown. Uforia have released a tight collection of excellent songs and with the re-appearance of other Canadian guitar acts like Billy Talent and the aforementioned Finger Eleven into the mix we could be in for a renaissance in Canadian rock music.
