The label

Dating back three years, sadly for those of us of wider-sphere recorded material is sparse, with only six songs available, but what a joy they are to the ears.




The Label are able to deliver – Quality Street shiny wrapper indie-rock, but they are also able to scour into the edges and utilise the two guitars to excavate some G.I.A. – D, flawless diamonds which take the breath away.

It is when listening to older tracks in the catalogue one finds the best work of The Label as, to me the latest track that surfaced last month is perhaps a little too user friendly for my ears, but then I have no clue about the world of mass media play, so no doubt it will be their most ‘commercially successful’, but I hope they revert to the gritty sounds of bruising percussion, twisted guitars, boisterous bass and an acerbic growling vocal and offer one of their older tracks by way of introduction – Push And Pull.

Where ever they travel, I wish the quartet the best and look forward to updating news later in the year.
