Kent’s favourite two-piece punk provocateurs, Slaves are back with their first new material since the release of their top-ten album, Acts of Fear and Love. The EP sees the band showcasing the two sides of their collective personality. Side 1 is a balls-to-the-wall display of the band’s more aggressive tendencies, One More Day Won’t Hurt starts with a Thrash Metal-inspired riff which descends into a heavy mid-paced groove, with Isaac spitting bile over a thundering beat, while It Makes Me Sick shows the influence of breakneck hardcore punk, such as Minor Threat, the Casualties and Discharge. Side 2 finds the duo in a more contemplative mood. The EP’s title track has Laurie strumming out a slow, acoustic blues line while Isaac laments the commercialisation of our culture in a style akin to Baxter Dury. When Will I Learn on the other hand is new territory, a plaintive piano ballad showing the band in a more vulnerable light.
