The Bordellos from St. Helens in England is the agit-rock trio of Brian (Guitar / Bass /vocals), Dan (Keyboards / Bass / Guitar / Drums / Vocals) and Ant (Percussion / Harmonica / Vocals).
Ever focussing on issues which vex them, The Bordellos reflect a continually changing landscape in their music. Extant for many a year through various iterations, the music ever has a connectedness of vicissitude melted into lo-fi hieroglyphs.
There is much to credit a core group of musicians who can find commonality in an ever shifting paradigm of shifting sands as they peruse the inconsistencies of the world outside their window. Parallaxes of sounds drift across the room as The Bordellos expound on the issues of strife.
Sporadic releases are made available in short bursts of activity which resonate of a moment in time and the band offers a reflective snapshot of the surrounding moment.
Personally I enjoy music which is of its moment as it stands as a testament, in the same way to diary entries of currency. Which for it’s very self-reflective introspection makes it less tangible when looked at from a different lens and I will inevitably seek to offer you music from time to time which causes you a moment to conjugate.
I find The Bordellos fascinating for their very inconsistencies and hope they stay to diarise the world from St. Helens for a long time to come.
