Review - The Quincies -"Change in the tide "
Also on Herald express site
After years of promise and fluctuating live gigs ,The Quincies , a band of equals, captures the spirit of what a band is about artistically in 2015 on their five track record "Change in the tide "
It's a record that has something to say about an ideal for living " Sleeping on Buses " emerged last year in demo format , whist lead off single "Lost in a Lifetime " sighted a possible tone .
But going through the looking glass to hear their fantastical tales of the artful poetic day to day from their own uplifting sanctions is nothing less than joyous.
Stand out moments include the opener " Holding Steady " with a fleet footed verse that drags you in for the entirety of the record and "Sonic Youth "
where raw emotions run riot delivering a beautifully ragged musical gumbo of soul, rock and psychedelia that can't help but touch nerves .Making the band sound at their most virile in terms of sound and lyrics .
This is a record of established grooves and spiky riffs , aligned with their strongest melodies yet . They seem to have filtered their anxieties on time's passing into an astounding record.for a certain generation of listeners not contained by genres but who have a hint of nostalgia in looking back to move forward.
It may have took them a while but it's been worth every second we have had to wait.
