From Athens in Greece comes George Nikas (Drums / Vocals) and Stamos Bamparis (Guitars) who make up the garage rock out-fit The Noise Figures.
The duo is able to deliver a sound which has the aural context of more than two players as they extend brooding storm clouds from the speakers. There is much to enjoy here as The Noise Figures produce music replete with sludgy depth and vivacity and for a duo that is a conceptual conundrum and well worth taking time to invest.
By combing West Coast USA lo-fi with British blues rock, The Noise Figures, intrigue as much as entertain providing the listener with compositions which enthral and entrance. Their ability to take the simple and shuffle in complexity of flavour affords them the space and time to produce sounds which are at one moment familiar, the next stunningly idiosyncratic.
This is a band of polar opposites and lack of players which at face value should shoot itself in the foot, instead of which the audience remains in startled silence. One gets the feeling if you are looking for a current translation of the flight from Sodom and the Pillar of Salt The Noise Figures are the epitome, don’t look back after you have encountered Athens 2013 with George and Stamos.
