Empires released a new EP at the tail end of last month titled Can’t Steal Your Heart Away, which they are giving away free via Noise Trade as well as on their Bandcamp page. The title track sounds at least a smidge like Interpol, with the same style of booming vocals and chugging guitar riffs. Alternatively, Empires also features a wider scope in their song crafting. “Can’t Steal Your Heart Away” really picks up in the second half with a buildup and then crescendo of vocals and screaming guitar that add some soul to the track; they ground it and lift it up all in one driving segment.
