Woes drop their latest offering in the form of a short and sweet five-track EP Self-Help. You are immediately drawn into the contagious song writing and catchy melodies thrown at you via the EP opener ‘High on You.’ The Scottish Pop-Punk lads have a clean and polished sound for such a youthful band. Reminiscent of many of their American counterparts, you would be fooled into thinking they are from over the pond, but clearly these guys have refined a sound suited to their audience.


Thumping riffs and huge sing-along choruses make it an easy on the ear EP. Melodic from the off, you’ll find it hard to fault this catchy little ditty. Woes are showing no sign of slowing down. With Download, Slam Dunk and Galaxy Camp festivals in the pipeline, alongside a UK headline run in May and Scottish regional tour in June, you’ll be able to appreciate this fine EP in all its glory for yourselves.


Self- Help is out May 4th via UNFD.
