The Agency… from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in England is the cemetery-rock collective centred around Steve Beyer (Guitar), Garry Cosgrove (Drums), Steven K Driver (Vocals / Guitar), Andy Ludbrook (Bass) and Kerry Ramsay (Vocals).
Given the vast disparities of outreach support – The Agency… is able to produce constructs which do not hark of a planning committee, as there is a consistency of the sounds which have a heart and soul which of and in itself is a conundrum, but all the best music collectives somehow manage to furrow a way through this line. ‘Tis true from time to time lyric stumbles over tunes, but don’t let that detract from the overall delivery, which describes of relationships across these anxieties.
Pulsating slowly from the speakers the instruments oscillate across the floor akin to a rhythmic digital ECG screen undulating line, whilst lyric eviscerates of scintilla upended, resulting in fractured slices of context, that give the calming tones a shadowed threat which attracts the audience to explore further and the more you seek of The Agency... the more they deliver within the fractals of ever imploding introspection.
A back catalogue of releases dating back to late 2012 culminates in a new eight track half an hour LP – Of Ghosts – which drops on the 29th September and is worth spending time to embrace.
