THE GARAGE FLOWERS – Panic Street Again
by Maria Savva
The Garage Flowers’ new single “Panic Street Again” was released last week and is the first track from their upcoming debut EP “Moods Like English Weather”.
Vocalist Joe Capaldi says of the song, recorded and produced by Margo Broom (Fat White Family, Calva Louise), “It started out lyrically as a writing exercise (1, 2, 3, 4) but soon grew into a lament of the dehumanizing effects of modern western culture. I was inspired by the rhetoric of dark comedy films I was obsessing over at the time, like ‘The Sunset Limited’ and ‘Happiness’, wherein tragedies are trivialized. Skeletons in the closet and out the closet, yesterday’s heartbreaks become tomorrow’s workplace anecdotes, speed dating routines, a growing list of facts and figures, professionally packaged and delivered for all next month’s weekend friends.”
Add to your Spotify playlist and keep an eye on their social media for news of tour dates and the release of the debut EP.
STARBENDERS – 21st Century Orphan
How often do I listen to glam rock? Almost never if I’m being honest. It’s just not really my thing unless it’s so very good that I can’t help but sit up and notice.
Starbenders are from Atlanta, Georgia and have been around since 2014. They are a bit glammy, but they’re much more Jane’s Addiction or Porno for Pyros than they are T Rex or Slade. Lead singer Kimi Shelter actually reminds me of a more hard-edged Kate Bush for some reason, and there are elements of early Fleetwood Mac in there somewhere it seems to me. Add to that the Deep Purple styling and there’s a really interesting alternative dynamic going on in their music. I like it. It’s interesting and a bit different.
Yeah, I sometimes break the one track rule. I found an Audiotree session of the band, and seeing as though I could only find audio of ’21st Century Orphan’ I thought I’d include it as they’re worth watching in action too.
