Lou Terry is a melancholic-rock creator from England.
Despite having received notification of the EP Week of Bees, which came out at the tail end of last week and is available on bandcamp, early last month – once again I am late – my apologies.
I am, however, able to indulge in and obviate my sadness for the delay – the acoustics that slide around the room akin to dark clouds blowing in-front of a bright sun, bringing a despondency and chill, which is followed, as is often the case with music of dour countenance by a sense of enthused appreciation for all as the gloom clears once again to reveal the warmth.
Colours, my pick of the release, is the first of the four tracks.
Youth Club an indie-pop band from Southend in England is Gerrard Duffield (Vocals), Rees Broomfield (Drums), Joseph Francisco White (Guitar) and Daniel Javier White (Guitar).
Although relatively new as a unit, there is performance and recording experience within Youth Club, which is evident in their début four track plus four remixes EP – Colours – which is scheduled for release on the 28th. Light on the ears and radio friendly, Youth Club have created a summery initial release. Whilst I find some of the sounds a little too ‘commercial’ for me there is also a connectedness to the music which plays well with the audience.
The music is of no specific geographically discernible location, which gives the band the potential for a wide international audience, though the vocals firmly place it as from England. At times ranging to the soulful, the next uplifting dance, Youth Club compose well structured pieces with the panache required to suit the style.
I look forward to hearing more of Youth Club as I am certain they have plenty more of the more moody textures inside themselves that personally resonate with me. Time will tell which direction they set their sail. Having experience in the band, should help them to steer clear of loosing the heart and soul of the sound.
