Yes they are one of the fresh voices of the indie rock scene. I am talking about the newest band to come out of Liverpool. They are The Juveniles. Their new EP is called You Won’t Control Us which lives up to the name and image of the band. And yes you can’t control me from raving about their music. It is partly Blur with a bit of Echo and the Bunny Men with something from Teardrop Explodes.
Their single is Help Me Out and I betcha no one can resist helping them out especially that they are so cool it makes you wish you discovered them first. Have you seen the music video of the single? It’s so freakin’ awesome and it represents all that is good about the band:music, fashion sense and yeah the amazing Mike Paul Davies who is the band’s frontman. They should expect hoards of fans from all ages , gender and sexual orientation!
You Won’t Control Us have four songs and the EP lasts seventeen minutes and twenty seconds. The title track which is the last song is another potential single with its beautiful and evocative arrangement.
Members are :
Mike Paul Davies (Guitar + Vox), Liam Devall (Guitar + Vox), Laurel Lau (Keyboards), @Marcgibbs (Bass), Fabrizio Cabriolu (Drums). I think they have a great teamwork as their music sounds tight and confident. Like they’ve played for years. Which is probably true. No band can sound this good without the polish of playing many times.
According to the band:
We grew up with Britpop and hip-hop, indie-rock and throw-away pop. We went on to find ‘madchester’, new wave, punk and the 60’s. Differing sounds, different people and defining moments in musical history that we hold so dear our souls.
Indeed. You will hear different textures when you listen to their latest EP. Here’s to the bright future of The Juveniles.
