From: Essex-ish, UK
Sounds like: Epic indie rock with layered strings and soaring vocals.

Thrash Hits verdict: Embraced by the Yorkshire label that launched Bring Me The Horizon as one of their less heavy bands, we thought there must be something about EastStrikeWest’s soaring, epic, stringed rock that piqued interests. Basically, it’s the bits of music xhardcorex bands do when they want to be soaring and epic and cool, just all the time. The result is that it sounds massive. Job done.
