Ironbird – Humbucker (EP)

ironbird - humbuckerIronbird are a rock band from Gold Coast City in Australia.  Formed in 2009 they released their debut EP (Hit the limit) in early 2010.  They followed this in early 2011 with their second EP (Midnight overdrive).  In late 2011 Skip Rutter joined on lead guitar and the band have now recorded and released their third EP – Humbucker, and are heading to the studio to record their debut album ready for release in 2013.

It’s a short four track EP, clocking in at around 12 minutes long (there is a fifth track – a short instrumental outro but I’ve excluded that as it’s not really a full song and is only just over a minute long).
Musically it’s good guitar-driven rock with a nice fast pace and good vocals.  There’s nothing especially unique or original about it, but if you like good heavy rock music then Ironbird are definitely worth a listen.
