"Put Your Heart into This ep reviews"

Big Cheese
"This three-piece West Yorkshire outfit have put together a wonderful little EP here. Above
Them have certainly got a bright future ahead of them... a very pleasant surprise indeed.

Rock Sound
"They've hit upon some great tunes and ultimately boast a sound that is all their own - and
this five-tracker will hopefully herald the start of bigger things. 7/10"

"With some rumbling basslines and soaring vocals the band know how to write a tune...
twists and turns with energy and passion, all without losing any of the spark or melody that
makes it so good in the first place. Above Them are certainly good enough to make waves
nationally, they now just need that lucky break. 4/5"

"The "Put Your Heart Into This" EP is a startlingly good release from Yorkshire band Above
Them... I genuinely expect to see big things of Above Them in 2008. This band seem, on
the surface, to have it all."

"Idlewild described early single ‘Captain’ as "an innocent, frank nugget of noise pop magic".
The ‘Put Your Heart Into This’ EP is similarly, five tracks of forthright and unabashed
rhythm and melody... This is an entirely surprise package - top-notch in its own right. 4/5"

Room Thirteen
"Above Them are vitally important to the UK music scene: hooks that you could hang the
world on, choruses that make your throat tear and a sense of earnestness and integrity
that are lacking from most bands; this is one of the most essential releases to come out of
the UK for some time. 13/13"

Formed in West Yorkshire in 2005, Above Them have quickly established themselves as a major part of the UK's blossoming DIY scene. Playing alongside the likes of Tellison, Hell is For Heroes, The Ataris, Bridge and Tunnel, touring the American Mid-West and sharing a stage with The Gaslight Anthem at Floridas The Fest these 3 Pontefract lads are certainly a band to watch. The release of their first major release with distributiion and pr company assistance brought rave reviews and murmours of great expectations. The band will release their debut album towards the back end of 2009. For further press info, please contact Henry Carden at Little City PR: littlecitypr@hotmail.co.uk
