Chavez Cartel - Confidence Is All I'm Taking Home (EP)



After the release of their debut EP " Lucky Lucky " earlier this year, Gold Coast alternative rockers Chavez Cartel are coming back with their new EP " Confidence Is All I'm Taking Home ".

The new EP reveals the bands spirit of self belief and persistence to overcome obstacles, doubts and negative criticism. It reveals their struggle to go beyond their limits so that they can continue as individuals, but also collectively as a band.

With the help of the producer Govinda Doyle, the EP contains 5 new songs. They successfully manage to bring us their own personal hard rock sound with influences from the 90s grunge scene, mostly by bands as Nirvana and Alice In Chains. 



The title of the EP comes from lyrics of the first track 'Scum and Fears'; "Confidence is all I'm taking home. Hard earned like ya fathers gold. I'd pay for pain but you bring so much for free." To grow we must accept who we are, flaws and all; embrace every opportunity we're given, make mistakes to learn harsh lessons and become a better version of ourselves. This is my favorite track from the EP. Hard rock/grunge in Nirvana style, with great guitar work and very expressive vocals. 

The second track is 'Different Underneath'. Heavy rock with fantastic rythm section and guitars on fire. The lyrics are about the battle between doubt and self belief wrestling it out for pole position. Overall it's an encouragement to stop doubting yourself, bite the bullet and pursue your aspirations with confidence.

'Love On The Run' is the single from the EP.. Catchy vocal melodies and riff that sticks in the mind.

The fourth track 'For Better Or Worse' is a love song about making it through all the ups and downs that come with a romantic relationship and the commitment associated with the vow 'till death do us part'. This is my second favorite song from the EP. A hypnotic rythm with an intensity that is peaking as it goes. 

Last song is 'See You Again' which is focusing on broken promises and empty words. It's a live acoustic gothic rock song. Ideal closure for this fantastic EP. 



I personally enjoy this work every time I listen to it and I never get bored. Chavez Cartel have everything they need to become a great rock band.
