Image Society is an indie band from New York in the USA comprising Jordan, Conrad, Sean and Brian.
Tightly woven guitars wrap themselves around a percussion that storms its way around the room. Image Society deliver an out-put that has a fresh zing to it, easy to listen to but, not fallen over into the pit of radio friendly wallpaper music. The quartet use dampers to keep the notes brief and this enables them to give the sense of spaciousness inside the frenetic levels of activity that plays through each track, leaving the audience with plenty of time to follow the complete context of the pieces.
Somewhat jazz funk derived Image Society sharpen everything up, to deliver a sound that pushes forward with urgency, giving the music a surprising twist of intrigue.
A band that is well worth spending some time to explore as on greater familiarity the rich textures become more apparent and the whole perception develops to realise the Image Society is a quartet with considerable technical and compositional skill.
I wish Image Society continued success with their music.
