Three Days From Retirement – new EP (review)

I’m not a big fan of instrumental music, don’t know why. But few bands are exceptions. One of them is Maybeshewill, another is Edinburgh based post-rock band Three Days From Retirement. Their new self-titled EP contains three 8-9 minutes long tracks. It all kicks off with ‘Operation Overload’, an anthemic tune with a smooth ear-warming guitar riff, enriched by drums and sound effects. The track reminds me of Dream Theater and Pink Floyd. It slowly progresses into a fantasmagoric emo-esque passage, bursting with howling guitars. Track number 2, my favorite on the EP is called ‘Happy Side Of Suicide’, and the title itself says Wow! I need to check it out! And the song itself is even better than the title. Gently weeping lead guitars sound happy and sad. It’s no longer pinkfloydelirium, it is pure emo rock, instrumental storytelling. The track sounds a bit like a romantic tragedy movie soundtrack, but through the sadness and despair in the sound shines some kind of happiness. Composition number 3, ‘It Got Legs’, is a long Anathema-esque outro, with guitars and keyboard tones falling softly into listeners hearts like snowflakes, then reaching climax with David-Gilmour-like riff and shoegazing down to the end of EP. Three Days From Retirement recorded a beautiful piece of music, which takes no prisoners. Only followers.
