From Munich in Germany arise Igor Kljujic (Vocals / Bass), Raffael Holzhauser (Guitar) and Christoph Holzhauser (Drums) who make up the progressive rock band Beautiful Noize.
An ascorbic lyric adds a dimension to the floating sounds of Beautiful Noize, that sears into the minds-eye. Extravagant guitar parades around the room with a percussion that seeks to usher out the largesse, whilst bass connects the flights of fancy with visceral vocal.
Beautiful Noize have the ability to bring the disparate strands together in a culmination of sound that allows the listener to follow the psychedelic blues whilst focussing on the threshing mill of vituperation. The conundrums of contexts do not leave the audience in a quandary as the trio thread a well conceived journey for the audience to enjoy.
Perhaps a little to fanciful for my everyday play-list, nonetheless, Beautiful Noize live up to their name with smart compositions that retain attention whilst leading the brain on a journey of fascination.
I am somehow minded of my days of journeys between London and The Cairngorms for ice-climbing sessions when the accompany soundtrack in the overnight car drive was provided by the radio station out of Ireland – Atlantic 252 – the automated playlist of The Big Mattress. Somehow wrong – but equally just so right.
