Than You Deserve, Always On Fire, Shape Of
Things To Come
The Le Scenes
are a young band from Northern Ireland, who under the guidance of
Ian Stewart of Musicbest Records, are tipped for an exciting future.
Paul Cook & Ray McVeigh have given their support and produced
three demos at Island Studios, London in January 2005.
Than You Deserve. The first two things to grab you are the
rasping vocals, which are not a million miles removed from Mr. Gallagher,
and the pounding rhythm section, which has a dash of The Who thrown
in. A good start. Some smart background vocals lend an air of pop
sensibility to a rich mix.
On Fire. A mid-paced track, a mixture of melody and rawness,
underpinned by impressive rolling bass.
Of Things To Come.
A steady melody (with a cool key change) is interspersed with bursts
of energy allowing the band to demonstrate their musicianship and
is a lot going on in these demos, as the band grab the opportunity
to showcase their strengths.
With the right
breaks, The Le Scenes could be around for a while to come. Intuition
& ingenuity combined with youthful zest. Definitely ones to
