The resultant debut EP Scary People have created is one that gives the impression of a band who have been honing and crafting their sound for years. Smoke is an accomplished debut epitomised by opening track 'Smokescreen' as it sets the tone for the EP - grabbing the listener by the throat and overwhelming them with thumping, driven drum beats, soaring guitar passages and heady distorted vocals. Second track, ‘Dreams of Gold’, further confirms Scary People’s ability to produce technically superb alternative rock, energetically laden with time changes and bound by glorious hooks reminiscent of the likes of Death From Above 1979.

Black Eyes is very much in keeping with the guitar and distortion heavy, gut-punching alternative rock sound Scary People have mastered and made their own since their humble beginnings.

Track Name: Dreams of Gold
Can you see the warning signs? Evacuate the building in short space of time. The fire from your eyes has left me deaf and blind, the service you provide will chew the bones of me inside.

I can live without you, can you live without me?

Do you feel nothing at all? My brain can poorly function with the grim taste of alcohol, I've had Dreams of Gold behind your bedroom wall - cross over to the other side, that's a breach of protocol.

I can live without you, can you live without me?

I've had Dreams of Gold, I've had Dreams of holding you.
Track Name: I Don't See The Light
I Don't See The Light of Day Anymore

I'd hate to see you making my eyes believe I won't let you go.
My mind it fears you, the back of your pale face is the only side I want to see before you go - you ought to know.

Your dirty habits and the wind of white lies, occupy my arms and all of my time, but everyone has something to refine - a little something to make you mine.

I love the way that you have your fun and there's always a little play with the devil's son but I've worked out a way for you to get your kicks but God is not good for everyone.

I Don't See The Light of Day Anymore

As a Gentlemen I said I would sit on down and speak to you, It's all I ever seem to do.
