REVIEW: Trophy Eyes – ‘Mend, Move On’

Artist: Trophy Eyes
Album: Mend, Move On
Label: Hopeless Records
Genre: Melodic Hardcore, Pop-Punk

Song: “The Last Garrison
Album: The Mindsweep

By the time Enter Shikari release The Mindsweep in early 2015 nearly three years will have passed since A Flash Flood of Colour arrived in stores.
