The way to get the best out of Galvarino is to set your speakers as high as they will go – kick them to get an extra boost as the scrummaging sounds of the trio scamper around the room.
Fusing brash percussion and bass with festering guitars Galvarino find the audience quickly caught up in movement as rock-a-billy meets heavy duty 1980’s British Rock fused with Americana, yet it doesn’t sound like a retrospective step backwards, rather a refreshing tumult of well worn leather jacket and newly minted frolics. The trio is able to invest into the audience a sense of togetherness in a whirl-wind of rock-n-roll.
The band has languished behind their ability since inception a couple of years ago as they have concentrated on local live performance, sadly neglecting the wider audience, which has perhaps held them back. Of positive news I am led to understand that plans are afoot for an LP later this year which may give those of us not in Los Angeles an opportunity to hear more.
Once I have additions to report – be assured I will let you know as I do enjoy Galvarino and am sure you will too.
