EP Review: Weatherhead – Cleaner Blood

Catharsis is defined as the purging of the emotions or relieving of emotional tensions,especially through certain kinds of art, as tragedy or music. When someone goes through pain, such as the death of a beloved one, they always search for an outlet to let out all their emotions. Some go to somebody else, others write out their pain and many go to music as a way out of their head. Whether it’s the musician or the listener who goes through tragedy, they always go towards that medium to let out their pain. It’s hard to determine why music really lets us feel better; it’s almost like listening to another person handle their grief puts you at ease. Many of the bands labeled under the genre Emo go hand in hand with emotional catharsis and one of those bands is Philadelphia, PA’s Weatherhead. The band started out in 2013 and the next year released their debut S/T EP. Now, back with their new EP Cleaner Blood, the band is firing on all cylinders showing that they’re not slowing down any time soon.

The EP opens up with the somber title track, which helps build the mood that the whole EP follows on. The piano backs up the track (and the rest of the EP) and helps build up the song before they let loose on the bridge. Right from the start you can see how the band’s mindset leans towards the more desperate side of . Whether it’s the desperate screams at times or the melancholic lyrics, (”I’m not sentimental / I think I am depressed”), you can tell that the band is in pain, and they wanna feel better. The highlight of the EP is the closer aptly titled “Contact”, which fully encompasses what the band was going for on the EP. Going between the slow verses and the angry screamed choruses, Weatherhead delivers emotion and catharsis with each lyric. Some of the themes that appear heavily in the EP are stuff like self-depreciation (“Cleaner Blood”), The need to get better, the fear of there not being someone above (“Contact”). The band isn’t here to really make us feel better; in fact it seems as if Weatherhead is just a way for the members to really let out all their feelings, all their doubts and fears. Maybe what they say is relatable to things many of us are going through, to the point where these moody tracks makes us feel something too. Relief of some sort, perhaps something close to the belief that you’ll push through.

Whether it’s the openness the band has to their lyrics, or just plainly how appealing these songs are, Cleaner Blood is worth a listen. The band can be appreciated even if you’re feeling great, but on those days where you’re feeling under the weather is when the band really speaks to you. That’s why the band makes you go through emotional catharsis, the EP makes you know that when you can’t feel anything, you can still push through. Weatherhead is slowly going up the food chain and soon enough, everyone will know what the band stands for.
