Estrons' 'You Say I'm Too Much, I Say You're Not Enough' tells stories torn from diary pages and dark thoughts
Published: 2:56 pm, October 03, 2018Words: Ali Shutler.

Digging their heels into the dirt, Estrons argue ‘You Say I'm Too Much, I Say You're Not Enough' with their debut album. Confrontational, challenging and never one to back away from a scrap, it's everything you'd expect from the band. They've spent the last two years purging demons and electrifying spirits on the road, and that energy fizzes through this record. On it, the band are always running. Towards or away, it's never quite sure, but it never lets up.

That doesn't mean Estrons have just stuck to that same path though. Sure, there are tracks that sound like that breakthrough moment of ‘Make A Man' (like ‘Make A Man'), all stomping urgency and bounding attack but the band are more than grit and fury. ‘Strangers' submits, ‘Cameras' is fiercely protective and ‘Body' is fine wanting what it needs. The stories told are personal, torn from diary pages and dark thoughts, but there's tenderness, there's reflection, and there's the resolve to never change for anyone but themselves. ‘You Say I'm Too Much, I Say You're Not Enough', and we're seeing so many sides to Estrons.
