In a time when scene kids don’t really dance at shows anymore nor talk to anyone but his or her cool indie hipster friends, it seems that Xrayok don’t even care. However they have still created music that is guaranteed to make you move or at least tap your toe, and if you aren’t moving or tapping your feet then you are more than likely dead. Although, honestly when this disc first played through, the first impression wasn’t too favorable; then after the second time through it struck a chord, and obviously the right one. Like life, this disc does have ups and downs.
On the downside of this EP, the sound that is created does at times seem to run together, which on one hand makes the EP feel as though it flies on by and on the other hand, the track separation can get lost. Each of the songs, in their own right, are great and each has it’s own catchiness but when that catchiness blends together, it loses some of the appeal. The song “Doesn’t Matter” is exactly that. It’s a track that just seems to sit there lyrically and musically. Perhaps that is the point of the track but as a song it falls flat.
On the upside, this disc will get you moving. This band has a great sound that has been described as “indie-brit-rock” but it could also be described as sexy electronic. They do have sounds similar to bands in that indie-brit genre, but at the same time they are able to put their own unique twist on the sound, which is where the sexy electronic kicks in.
Thus, with the release of Like Life, Xrayok are out to get you moving and grooving. With an infectious sound they seem to have a decent understanding of their music and they don’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. So if you’re tired of your life or just your humdrum music collection, Xrayok will at least give you a reason to like music and Like Life.
