Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist

Hailing from St. Petersburg, Russia, four-piece alt-rock band Ashes CollideMarfa Savchenko (vocals), Nikita Frolov (guitar), Roman Vtorov (bass), and Aleksandr Kolchin (drums)make a splash in the American scene with their emotive debut EP, First CollideThe band brings a fresh sound to the genre overall, though each of the five tracks on the EP has a sound all its own, with catchy melodies and riffs that never feel stale or overdone. First Collide establishes the band as one that isn’t afraid to think outside the box, experiment with the conventions of their style, and create their own formula for an attention-grabbing rock song.

For the most part, the album retains an unwavering upbeat feel, with the exception of the fourth track, “Do I Have a Dream.” Frolov’s guitar effects dominate the second track, “No Fear,” highlighted beautifully by Vtrov’s groovy bass, especially during the bridge of the song. “Talk” leans more toward a pop sound, giving frontwoman Marfa Savchenko a chance to show off both the raspy and smooth sides of her voice. “Do I Have a Dream” goes in a different direction, providing a break from the high energy with contemplative, introspective lyrics. The song builds throughout, changing key for the choruses and adding in beautiful harmonies. The band brings the energy back for the closing track, “B.B,” an anthem for self-expression and self-discovery.

Top-notch mixing and mastering by Russia’s own Nicolay Bazhenov make First Collide an album you’ll want to listen to again and again. If these five songs are any indication, Ashes Collide just might be making their way up the charts in the first few months of the new year.
