Luck,Now

Luck,Now express a pent up frustration that burns its way through the lightness of the material and this combination of mutinous bass and percussion, pairing with cheerful synth and bright guitar gives the out-put an immediate attraction, to which the commentariate vocal strides successfully between the disparate concepts.

Formed out of the ashes of What,Really?, Luck,Now have utilised the experience, to develop a more textured sound. In many ways minding of Californian new-wave in the late ’70s Luck,Now freshen up the influences to deliver music that connects with the ’10s with the combination of depressing realities which are unable to repress the buoyant optimism.

I have only had the opportunity to hear the début EP, released on the 24th – just another lucky start (available on bandcamp), which was recorded by the formation duo taking all the parts, so it will be interesting to hear follow-up material with the full line-up. Given the recording in isolation, Luck,Now is a band with far to travel in the world of music.

Secret Club

Grumbling fuzz devours the ears as Secret Club unleash their unfettered commentary of the world around in a freneticism of activity. The angular chords and beats sit at juxtaposition to the veiled fused soundscape, which gives the out-put an immediate attention grabbing feature as sharpness is diffused through a filter of mesh.

Combining good humour with dour commentary Secret Club offers the audience a dégustation menu from which to enjoy and it works particularly well. Relatively newly out of the blocks, their début eleven track LP Apocalypse Meow, set for release in June finds a decent slice of material in which the audience can find satiation.

Secret Club is well worth getting to know now before gig ticket prices become stratospheric.

Black Flowers Cafè

Black Flowers Cafè produce sounds which flow around firmly staked bass, which gives the tracks their pivot point, to which the quartet paint the colour palette of influences. Ranging from the Psychedelic to indie rock, despite the breadth they are able to provide a commonality of theme which finds the listener wrapped inside the various textures.

Black Flowers Cafè have an experimental air that gives the output a sense of discovering new edges, without ever disappearing into over complex ideas. This fresh angle whilst retaining reference points allows the audience to invest in the track being played, whilst looking forward with anticipation to the next.

A few years behind them, with releases dating back to 2011, has given Black Flowers Cafè the confidence and poise to deliver music which surprises as much as it delights with the disparities of context and they succeed in delivering well thought through complexity to compositions whilst not asking the listener to have a PhD in music theory to be able to fall into the seamless textures.
