The Transition - EP [edit]
by Philmont | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: October 19, 2010
 

The follow-up to Philmont’s critically acclaimed Attention, The Transition EP delivers a high-energy, melodic pop sound with singable choruses like on the single “You Will Remain.” Lyrically, the project ventures a bit more in-depth than previous Philmont efforts, touching on themes that include God’s divine nature, the case for creation, and value of human life.

Philmont frontman Scott Taube explained, “It's been a couple of years since we wrote the majority of Attention. We've experienced a lot in life since then -- both joys and struggles -- and we feel like this growth is reflected on the new EP.”

Philmont | Posted October 25, 2010
After a short stint on the once infamous Forefront Records, pop/rock act Philmont finds itself independent once again. The band included its fans in their latest project, Transition EP, by allowing them to assist in funding the album through Kickstarter (a fundraising website that’s become popular among independent bands). Compelling hooks, bright melodies, polished production, and spirited lyrics make this release their best yet.

This six-song EP is catchy throughout, from the toe-tapping punk-infused rocker “I Am” to the sing-able “Ringing In My Head” to the melodically beautiful acoustic ballad “The Last Song I Sing.” The lyrics are just as captivating as the melodies. According to vocalist, Scott Taube, “The Alchemist” was “written as a metaphorical debate for creation,” certainly an interesting topic for a song. While Philmont’s songs don’t explicitly use “God” or “Jesus,” it’s pretty obvious that the songs have spiritual undertones with lyrics like, “Cause who am I/that You would die to prove/that the worthless are all worth it” (“Closer”).


Philmont matures its sound with Transition, while maintaining the spunky, high-octane rock that fans have come to love. Philmont is transitioning into a seemingly bright future…
