    The energy and spark that Ought base their sound on carries much in common with the best of their influences, finding new ways to sound fresh and exciting even in this short sampling.

    This follow-up to April’s excellent ‘More Than Any Other Day’ debut is a scattergun 24-minute journey, and its every destination is a delight.

    A four-track EP that runs for the best part of 25 minutes and possesses more depth, more intrigue, than most full-lengths running to twice as long.

    If these four tracks prove anything, it’s that even when working from off-cuts, the band continue to thrill with their unrivalled promise and exuberance.

    All these songs have a nervous edge to them, but if Ought cut their teeth on post-punk tension, they also break from it here into various and compelling new directions.

    Ultimately, Ought have created an EP that does not draw attention away from their debut album, but instead builds on it, driving their intensity forward and reaching further outwards for raw emotion and energy.

    Once More With Feeling… acts as both a great introduction for new fans, highlighting their DIY aesthetic and their ability to subvert their own song structures, and as a nice addition to Ought's already great discography for existing fans.
