A somewhat interesting band for many reasons, we were left impressed by what we saw here tonight. “1000 Mouths” has a relentless sway of guitar that made us liken the band to Suede because of the definition and consistency in the sound. It is an indie style that is highly encouraging, while the latter way it plays through gives off a Neil Young vibe. It is a song of two halves when the latter salvo is taken into consideration. The bass hook of “King O’ Ye” is a clever touch because it gives everything flair and hooks you for the right reasons. The undertone is incredibly detailed and developed which helps to accommodate the running. The formidable feel here is noted by the overall showing that comes to be. The beautifully strum their next rack “Every Streetlight” into life. A magnificent sense of bravado collects in the process with this lightness of touch. It unfolds intelligently and contains more than one playing style as well.
The slow and steady approach is maintained on “Mouth Of The River” and is guided through before the change in direction. This gives the tempo a transcendent keel as the tempo neatly falls into place. The opulent feel is cleverly complimented by these lucid touches and serve the approach well. You sense the calculation with how the weight of “The Turn Of The Stair” is distributed. As it steps out the mature calling steadily rises. The lyrics also possess an impressive degree of majesty that is complimented by the high pitch in the vocals. A soft shoegaze sound is beckoned through in the process, while there is a hint of Fleetwood Mac to be felt from the rhythm guitar on this one. They brought the curtain down with “Finglas Fires (Spook The Horses)”. It is a commendable tune indeed. How the texture of the rhythm is spaced gives it a steadier hold. Adding to the mix is a sleight of hand that gives it a country apparel but they also deliver it in a manner that removes them from this as a genre. It is impressive in how they sit back into the play to give off such an impression.
Up next from the band is a gig on May 4th at The George Bernard Shaw.
