No Love in Your Heart

By The Earlies

The Earlies sound weird. Think Trumpets, violins, synthesisers, beats and pianos.  It shouldn't work, but it does. They follow the same genre of music as the Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene and The Magic Numbers. Not content with a guitar, a bass and a set of drums, these fellas have brought a full orchestra to the table with glorious results.

The first offering " No love in your heart" starts off with a string ensemble and soon gives way to a synthesiser, guitar and drum roll. Not the most conventional of starts but the collection of instruments and styles work remarkably well. They push the boundaries, insisting you take notice of them, due to their individuality and superb arrangements.

Bring on track 2!

I embarked upon listening to "Breaking point" and genuinely did not know what was going to transpire. From electric beginnings and beats, the song germinates into a dub, eastern orientated journey, complete with chanting,   that consumes you, enthrals you and then spits you out thinking "what the hell happened there". The nearest comparison I can think of is Kula Shaker, mixed by Fat Boy Slim! Strange indeed.

This review has probably got a few of you scratching your heads thinking, what is he on about? but you really have to listen to The Earlies to appreciate their diversity and  uniqueness.  I welcome The Earlies with open arms, and their forthcoming album "The Enemy Chorus" should be on everyone's shopping list. Open your minds and enjoy the ride.
