Fenech-Soler played at Relentless Garage on Saturday 5th of February and it was an epic gig.
Is Tropical took to the stage first, opening the night with hard indie, something of a mix between The Walkmen and Mystery Jets but even more bizarre. Is Tropical were followed by Mirrors a pop noir electronica indie band sounding like New Order on crack - GREAT - and to be honest, the bar after these two bands was set really high. The show itself was a familiar gig with around 80 eclectic and enthusiastic followers full of excitement. The small stage was at floor level making the crowd anxious for the party music. Fenech-Soler finally came on stage and were engaging with the crowd intoxicating the atmosphere with feel good vibes. They played their single Lies and the fans went crazy, their 80’s like synth electro pop is definitely the best way to pump up a weekend.
The crisp vocals of lead singer Ben Duffy with the - Oh so amazing! – overtones, the infinite drums, the prevailing bass and the synth filled the room of sound and life through their whole show. The Kings Cliff boys didn’t waste a minute and gifted the crowd with a performance of their new single Demons (released yesterday - Monday 7th of February). The sound of the single was nothing but amazing true to their quirky and peculiar style, most definitely February’s party anthem. We are glad to see that the British music scene is what it use to and that good music is being produced, with attitude, personality and charm.
