Metro Station - Gold Cover

Metro Station are back. Is that a good thing?

Much like most of Metro Station’s pre-fallout output, new EP ‘Gold’ is half-decent, half teeth-grindingly awful. ‘She Likes Girls’ is a mile-a-minute pop-rock gem about a relationship going the way of Ross Geller’s marriage, while opener ‘Love & War’ could easily be a 5 Seconds Of Summer banger with a bit more beef and a lick less electronica. The ghastly, breathy thrust of ‘Gold’ brings things down some, and Euro-pop misfire ‘Forever Young’ chalks up another miss on one of the most varied releases of the year. But even then, it’s still fun in a really, really naughty way.
