Got to draw a detailed picture of The Loud. To kick off with here are a few broad strokes, the band are said to be drawing influences from the modern day and 1960’s and 1970’s garage. Think Spenser Davies Group, mid-to-late Kinks, The Yardbirds, add to that a love of the 1980’s – do you follow? They are into Jesus And The Marychain, Echo And The Bunneymen, and you get the odd guitar riff that backs some of what I have mentioned, the rest could be the melodies that remind you of that ‘Ocean Rain’ classic, but you still have the mid-1970’s occasional nods and on the odd track, a laid back style.
People what we have here is natural, some might say, organic, and although this band do not demonstrate the scientism skills of one Baron Frankenstein, I urge you to steel yourself from the pull of The Loud. It’s too late for me, lost on my fifth play, there were no warnings, nothing, not even a word of advice…
I have been turned into a side-kick – call me Igor. Forever more straining every muscle to proclaim this creature’s innocence, their right to live, free and unprosecuted life. But my mind is rambling what I can tell you is that you need to know more. That you may have to wait until June 2Oth until Amy’s Gonna Get You’ big guitar, latter day vocal stylings, comfortable sized hooks, good production. I am sold. Just don’t call me Igor. 8/10
