"Shining Through - EP review"

"Undeniable is Clelland's way with words, shining through's crunchy guitars, and the bigger ideas that exist on Man Vs. Wild. Overall, it's an undeniably honest and bare EP with - and I can't stop emphasizing this - lyrics that win in both symbolism and vocal punch. Beat that Jesse Lacey." -, Julia Conny

"Shining Through - EP review"

"Shapeshifter shows Clelland has grown confident with his musicianship. The question remains whether or not a full-length could now preserve the off-the-cuff energy that makes Shining Through. Until then, Shapeshifter can only really be an awesome taste." -, Julia Conny

"Stop Whatever You're Doing and Give Shining Through a Listen"

"Verdict: 9.5/10 Stop whatever you are doing and give SHINING THROUGH a listen. Every single track on White Flag is full of catchy choruses, above average to interesting musicianship, and quality lyrics (when does that happen in this genre?). This EP does not drop until September 20th, but it will be well worth the wait once you get your “hands” on it. Title track “White Flag” is an obvious standout, as the hook will literally hook you in and have you nodding your head along, the chorus is smart enough lyrically that you won’t be embarrassed to find yourself singing it out loud when it inevitably gets stuck in your head. The next track, “San Diego Summer” sounds like vintage MAYDAY PARADE, in that it’s a slow builder that actually pays off, with a neat little bridge and guitar solo, and the outro features some rather thought provoking lyrics that added a nice touch. Look out for SHINING THROUGH. Save room in your summer playlist for one more gem. – by Nick Senior" -, Nick Senior
