After a couple of decent releases courtesy of Flicker Records, Nevertheless is independently releasing a five track love song EP entitled When I'm With You EP. Apparently the band chose to write these songs for their wives, and the final product is a rather enjoyable twenty minutes of music for love birds to play all day while enjoying each others' company.
The EP opens with “I Can’t Help It,” which sets the tone for what the listener can expect from the remaining tracks. It’s a song about how silly we can become when we are in that blissful state of first love. “Stay (In My Arms)” showcases a nice mixture of strings and piano keys while Josh Pearson sings beautiful lyrics such as, “Because you’re here, it’s all right now.” The remaining three tracks basically follow suit and are solid listens blending love-esque lyrics with soft background music.
All in all, this is a short yet sweet EP. I’m sure that you could make this a great record to listen to during that romantic evening with your loved one. My hope is that this short record does not signify an end to a talented group of guys.
After parting ways with Provident, we almost lost Nevertheless entirely as the band considering calling it quits. However, with renewed hope, the guys have put together the When I'm With You EP, a collection of acoustic love songs inspired mostly by married life. Nevertheless stay true to where their hearts are at on this project, weaving a sensitive and vulnerable collection of romantic tunes. The EP is intended to tide fans over until their next full-length project next year, and it does a good job to reintroduce fans to the newly independent act. While nothing extraordinary, it's a delightful project that romantics and fans of the band should be able to enjoy alike.

After only hearing the band's "The Real" and "O' Child" songs from their Live Like We're Alive CD, I certainly wasn't expecting this kind of music from them on their When I'm With You EP! However, it definitely came as a pleasant surprise. Every song on this EP has the sweetest lyrics! I could listen to them again and again. Nice job, Nevertheless! :)
