With only a couple of tracks that I have been able to hear Luster have an infectious quality that captures attention – more so in their most most recent reveal You’ve Got The Heat a beat that finds the heart pumping in syncopation with the joie de vivre that skips through the room and the listener finds themselves subconsciously swaying to the tempo.
Given the difference between the two pieces, the earlier – Good Dreamer being a more layered melancholia – this is an outfit I look forward to hearing more of in short order as by which ever thread Luster choose to hang the fruit they are capable of delivering a track that soaks in to the limbic system, taking the audience with them.
The Danish dark-rock outfit The Bowdashes are currently putting finishing touches to their début EP.
There is a deep bass, with strings slung so loosely the listener can practically touch them, so necessarily The Bowdashes are immediately on my essential music playlist. The gloomy atmosphere has an inherent beauty in which the audience wants to sell their soul at any-price as the growling just over three minutes of In Control rumbles through the speakers. A deft minor chord change part way through the song adds an unexpected allure and you just know these are a talented duo of musicians.
Already establishing a regular live performance schedule the EP will, with fortune, afford The Bowdashes wider audience and an outfit I look forward to hearing much more of in short order.
Rummage for that faded leather jacket, select your preferred air-guitar, strike your pose and then hit play.
The fourth of the ten tracks Song Of Reckoning hammers out of the speakers like a cork firing out of a warm and shaken bottle of champagne as the bubbles sprays all around, prior to settling down to an impressive display of power melody.
