Petric’s brand new EP, 18 Ends, will be released on November 17th. We’ve had the pleasure of listening to it this week, what can we tell you? Simply that we love it and we think you will too.
We’ve been fans of the SteelHead Music band from day one and we’re going to break it down and let you know what to expect from this EP and we’re also going to include all the links including the pre-order link at the bottom.
Transcona, Manitoba brothers, Tom and Jason Petric have been in and out of the studio for most the past year and their six-track EP gets a top grade in our books.
There are a couple of familiar tracks including Play It Safe which was released as a single on April 17th, 2017 and the title track, 18 Ends, which was released on September 13th, 2017. Both tracks are terrific indicators of what to expect from the rest of the EP. We’ll tell you, that you can expect great stories, catchy choruses, beautiful harmonies, and amazing musicianship.
Let’s get to it and talk about the four brand-spanking new tracks!
Sometimes we see things differently and everything isn’t always obvious. On track two, Love And Rust gives us some great examples of this like, “Maybe you see a dashboard full of dust, I see love and rust”. This song has a great beat and helps me to think things from someone else’s point of view. I have to say, I hope we get a video for this track, I’m picturing a very old truck and a pretty girl riding shotgun.
Slowing things down with track three, It Should Be Me, the guys show us their tender side. This story is one we all know, falling for someone who isn’t yours, someone you can’t have, trying to get them out of your head and failing miserably. It’s completely relatable and we really like this one.
Track five, Never Met You, tells the story of randomness, serendipity, destiny or fate and it tells it in a sweet way that makes us think about meeting that special person and all the things that go into making that happen. It left me feeling hopeful and positive.
The last track on the EP is Can’t Say No, and it does a great job convincing me that the guys have found some pretty special love in their lives and that we’re all benefiting from awesome songs like this one.
Note: Congratulations to Petric on their recent MCMA Award win for Group or Duo of the Year and to go along with that, they’ve also passed the 3 million impressions mark on Spotify!
If you’ve ever had the chance to meet Jason and Tom you’ll know that they’re the nicest, kindest, most polite country boys you could hope for. They’re super active on social media and they truly appreciate their fans. Got something to ask or something nice to say, send them a message!
