The Piccadilly Teardrops from Sheffield in England is the dream synth duo of Kid Faces (Vocals / Keys / Guitar) and Dean Honer (Keys / Percussion).
The Piccadilly Teardrops
Take a deep breath and join The Piccadilly Teardrops in a journey submerged in fluidity. The viscosity of the music makes axle grease seem as though it is filled with grit and the two experienced players proffer a synopsis of the world which is cloaked in a velvet smoking jacket.
My only sadness is that I have to emerge for breath from time to time as the material in their début eighteen minute four track EP – My Family Of Ghosts, which comes out on the 22nd January washes over my body.
Big looping electronics coat the room whilst honing the listener towards a fusion of instrumental and vocal which, no matter how hard the arms attempt to embrace the compositions, are always just a tad out of touching as they glide effortlessly out of grasp. The duo have developed a sound which envelopes the listener in a balm of unctuousness that you just never want to end.
Does this translate to live performance? Most certainly in the right room this a band to see live with others, but don’t expect them to be appearing anywhere to close to you too often, if The Piccadilly Teardrops have their heads screwed on, as without sympathetic acoustics and sound engineer who knows the difference between reverb, echo and damp, the whole point is lost, but in the right venue – I can envisage a crowd braying for more. This is music to share and I do hope they are able to find venues with the right ambience as this is where they will gain the wider recognition they deserve.
