Back in December of 2014, Dorthy released their debut, self titled EP. This EP gives you a taste of Dorthy's talent, though we get the impression that Dorthy is best live, rather than on recording. We didn't pick up on an exact theme for the EP, but we did enjoy what we heard. We can't say much about the EP, we're afraid, but we have determined that Dorthy is best live based off of what we have heard.
Half of the EP felt like great 'hype' songs, like the kinds bands would play in the middle of their set at a concert simply to get the crowd moving a bit. The other half, was melodic in its own sort of way.
"Gun In My Hand" had a sort of western feel to it, and asks the question, "Why did love put a gun in my hand?" Well, we're afraid we don't have answers to that question, but love is a battlefield. You have to fight for what you love, and perhaps that on its own answers your question.
Then there's "Wildfire", this one is probably the catchiest on the album. It speaks of a woman who is a 'wildfire', and we're taking that as this woman is something special and should be appreciated.
If anyone is interested you can get Dorthy's EP on iTunes now, and can catch them at the Rock Allegiance festival on October 10, in Chester, PA. Be sure to follow them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to keep up with all their future endeavors as well!
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
