The debut EP from the combustible yet melodious Rochester Hills, Michigan-based post-hardcore outfit, the independently issued Heart vs. Mind offers up seven slabs of punk/emo/hardcore goodness, including the punishing, breakdown-heavy title track, the defiant punk-pop anthem "Crossroads," and the emotionally charged, largely acoustic ballad "My Heart I Surrender." Fans of like-minded noisemakers such as Bring Me the Horizon, Between the Buried and Me, We Came as Romans, and As I Lay Dying will find much to love here.
