[MV & Album Review] April – ‘Eternity’

Just in time for autumn, April has dropped their fourth mini-album 'Eternity.' A followup to their single album 'Mayday,' the EP has six new songs for your perusal.

I have to admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of the title track "Take My Hand." But the more I listened to it, the more I liked it. Sometimes it's just that simple. It's an unrepentant summer bop, bouncy and ebullient and full of life.  that's not a bad thing at all.  It's fall, so we're probably going to get slower and slower tracks. So far as I'm concerned, I'll happily take all the cheerful jams I can get.
