Elemental

By The Somatics

Been there, seen it and done it bands like The Somatics can always be relied on to deliver something with soul rather than the majority of fashionista-fly-by nights that adorn any music scene. There's a certain hark back to the days of shoe gazing with Elemental, the first to be taken from the band's forthcoming album Dynamo Mercurial. Sounding like Sonic Youth play Pink Floyd it thunders away like a distant storm and finds the band on some of their finest form to date. If this is a taster of the album then all the signs point to it finally making sense. Even more interesting is the hypnotic pounding of the magnificent Cool Wet Grass which feels like the point of no return when the room begins to spin after one too many sups. The dreamy string bending You Promised Me makes perfect use of the dual vocals lilting along with Richard and Stephanie sounding as if they never met to record the song but just guessed how the other might sing it.
