Victories at Sea from Birmingham in England is the synth-rock trio of John-Paul (Vocals / Guitar), Steve (Bass / Keys) and Rob (Drums).
Victories At Sea
The combinations of strings, natural percussion and electronics which is tipped by a plaintive vocal that gives Victories At Sea a surprisingly organic reflective that fleetingly whirls around the room before disappearing akin to a stream of smoke.
The trio caress the listener with silk gloves that tease the head in gentle touches. Victories At Sea deliver music which has a rhythm that pulsates as by osmosis inside the body and the audience becomes part of the music as it kneads the cortex into reveries of fusion.
Experienced musicians with approaching half a decade together, the progression of Victories At Sea thus far has been somewhat pedestrian. As I have noted many times this past year the use of analogue-synth is an ever more prevalent part of the UK music scene and I can only hope they will find that their training will now allow them the opportunity to maximise on the crest of a wave that currently flows.

The Great Sabatini – an alt-metal band from Montreal in Canada – is Steve (Drums / Vocals), Sean (Guitar / Vocals), Joey (Bass / Vocals) and Rob (Guitar / Vocals).
The Great Sabatini
Pin back your ears and be prepared for a nerve jangling experience with The Great Sabatini. Don’t be fooled by the seeming rawness of it all, as the quartet are in-fact highly expressive and experienced musicians who prefer to avoid the accoutrements of grandeur, giving the resulting out-put a blurry quality to which the listener can immediately relate.
Whilst the music has an apparent simplicity to the ears, there is much going on within the performance and it the ease with which The Great Sabatini is able to express complexity, simply, that raises the bar and makes them a band I recommend spending some time getting to know.
Currently winding down what has been an extensive North American tour the band also find some time to get into the studio and their third LP – the ten track – Dog Years – has recently appeared on bandcamp. Well worth adding to the collection.
