WE FEW – ‘Morse Factory’ (4/5)



‘Morse Factory’ is the debut studio EP from Stoke-on-Trent indie outfit We Few.

The four-piece have a good live reputation, so I was interested to see if they could capture the essence of their live sound and translate it well on to a studio recording.

Well, it seems that they have achieved exactly this.

Listening to the EP, I closed my eyes and could feel myself transported to one of the fine Potteries music venues.

The sound is pulsating and full of catchy and soaring guitar riffs, with lengthy solos forming a key part.

The choruses are anthemic, with the gravelly, chanting vocals of frontman Tom Machin acting as rallying cries to the listener.

It definitely seems that the band have gone all out to make this as big sounding as possible.

The pick of the bunch has to be the title track, which sees them being adventurously creative with the effective use of the beeping sound of Morse code, which acts as a prologue and epilogue, and which also contains an excellent guitar solo.

It is a very strong debut, and if they can sustain this, which I am absolutely sure they can do, then they have a bright future ahead of them.
