New Way On are a quintet from Riverside, California who play punk rock with a three part harmony that adds a unique element to their recordings. Roads Home is five tracks of punk rock with a slight country tinge, the male and female vocal harmonies are perfectly pitched alongside the melodic punk n roll backing. New Way On are the newest members of the La Escalera Records family, they released their new EP, Roads Home, that follows on from 2014’s Survival EP, at the end of September. 

I honestly can’t pick a favourite song from this five track EP, as the consistency in their songwriting just makes that impossible, every track is a hook laden classic in waiting with an immediacy and accessability that pulls you straight into their EP. On this impressive EP New Way On avoid falling into the trap of sticking to a single formula, from the opening track Blue Dress to the closing track of Ellie, each track retains it’s punky character but reflects different facet of the band. Roads Home is an extremely impressive release that improves upon their previous Survival EP, for me this is a band that deserve more recognition than they have gained to date, hopefully the Roads Home EP will go some way to addressing this.

In short Roads Home is a near perfect EP, and is one of my favourite singles of the year, their influences are worn like badges of pride and as a result their sound lies somewhere between Social Distortion and Exene Cervenka‘s punkier releases. Roads Home is both the perfect follow up their Survival EP, and a move forward for the band, now they have joined the La Escalara Records family I’m hopeful that we’ll see more releases from New Way On as this is band that we need to hear more from.
