The Sheila Divine have been fairly active in their reunion recently, releasing a few singles here and there on their Bandcamp. At the very end of March, they released an EP, Fossils From the Future, their first release since 2012's The Things That Once Were. It's starts off a little rocky, with "Weightless" falling into the Nada Surf-esque Adult Contemporary emo doldrums. It's not a bad song, just more of a personal preference kinda thing. The second track, "Indie Rock Ranger," starts to turn it around with a great middle ground of their late 90s scream heavy cuts and their more current, mature sound. This is middle aged alternative power pop at its finest."I Love You Yeah" is more of a power ballad, but goes more in the direction that I prefer The Sheila Divine to go in with their more mellow tracks. They are best when they have more of an edge to their melodic side, which this EP really shows off.
