The Supplements – ‘Moving On’ EP

An array of both moody post-punk builds and satiating rock vibrancy stirs on the Moving On EP, the latest from Miami-based band The Supplements. They describe the release as focusing “on the singer’s long-term dysfunctional relationship that ended shortly before the songs were recorded.”

Suave vocals and chirpy guitar pulses contrast enjoyably on the opening “Another Day,” which drives to a twangy soaring in its satiating conclusion. The production wholly enamors in its fusing of laid-back vocals and escalating guitar tones, meshing a dreamy composure with a more vibrant power-pop charm. “Can’t Have Everything” follows, expressing “want to be your everything,” during a radiant rise while also acknowledging they can’t have everything, alongside a post-punk rhythmic rumination; it’s another success from this talented act.

The EP’s title track concludes the release with a hooky charisma. “Don’t keep me waiting too long, all I want is time with you alone,” the vocals yearn amidst a bass-thumping engrossment. “All you gotta do is pick up the phone,” the vocals escalate alongside charged-up guitar brightness — “I want you to see me in a different light.” The Moving On EP succeeds on all three of its track, cementing The Supplements as an act fully capable of contemplative post-punk and shimmering rock hookiness alike.

“Another Day” is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
