Cleveland, Ohio quintet Front Porch Lights have released a little folksy-alternative EP gem that will have a substantial impact as the band moves forward. Go On Ahead, a crowd-funded five-track EP, is composed of feel-good, stomp-your- feet, and drink-a- beer singles that are quick to make a fan out of even the most casual of listeners.
Led by lead-singer and rhythm guitarist Conor Standish, Front Porch Light’s Go On Ahead is a small collection of what’s genuine about indie-rock. A 20-minute EP brimming of deep thought-out lyrics channeled through dynamic strings and horns and an optimistic sense that everything will be just fine.
The EP, though only 5-tracks deep, takes the audience through a rollercoaster of emotions that range from upbeat and danceable on “iFolk” – which invites one to drop all cares in the world and party like no-one is looking – to laid-back namesake “Go On Ahead” and wearing your heart on your sleeve, without sounding cliché or cheesy.
Collectively Go On Ahead is the work of five guys that seem to truly care about finding a constructive balance between artistry and mass appeal. Front Porch Lights has released an attention-grabbing EP; and inserted in us a yearning for what’s to come from the ‘Rock-n- Roll Capital of the World’ quintet.
