Jekyll from Thornton-Cleveleys in England is the rock quartet of Joel Foster (Guitar), Jonny Chatterton (Guitar / Vocals), Lewis Armistead (Bass) and Liam Singleton (Drums).
It was a pleasure when I alighted upon Jekyll with their blend of melodic rock. Reminding me of many earlier references, but sounding like none in particular, the quartet deliver sounds full of shifting dynamics with their melancholic perspectives. Though of reflective moods the quartet does not have the listener reaching for the razor-blade, rather, offering an empathetic hand to a troubled world as they reflect on the trials and tribulations of existence.
Jekyll play with the lower registers in away that gives the music a grandeur without pomposity as the demure style of delivery which dreamily wisps around the room in expansive chords. The duality of guitars drift lazily between one another allowing the band to create sounds which are more usually synthesised and evidence of their ability as musicians as well as song-writers to extract the most out of the gear at hand.
Currently gaining a local following I would expect to see more of Jekyll in short order to a wider audience.
