New Gigs and New Music from Joe Symes and the Loving Kind

The music scene in Liverpool is very much alive and exciting. All you have to do is Catch Up with them through this fantastic show called Made in Liverpool. Yes you don’t have to go back to the 60s or 70s because fresh and hot music is available today. One of the bands I am exciting to mention is Joey Symes & The Loving kind making their way in this blog with their morning fresh music!

If you haven’t noticed yet, hey released their new EP early this year. The EP is titled Acoustic Variations. The band have to say about this release and the gigs that followed after(understand that this was a correspondence early this year but I was drowning in work):

“The band’s last release ‘Things Get Better’ was a three week BBC Introducing & BBC 6 Music feature and the band have recently been filmed by LFC TV ( Liverpool Football Club ) and also The Arts Alive Show on Virgin media channel 159. We also recently played at The Royal Court Theatre in the city centre for the JFT96 event and also headlined the 02 academy 1 in Liverpool for the official aftershow party for Noel Gallagher’s high flying birds for a second time and we are currently recording our second album at Peter Gabriel’s Solid State Logic studio’s in Oxford due for release  in the new year.”

Jammerzine has something positive to say about the album:

This EP is also a total 180° departure from the last album in many ways. It is considerably more subdued in it’s delivery. The album “Joe Symes and the Loving Kind” was a lot more rigid in it’s delivery where as “Acoustic Variations” is more subdued while the band is more comfortable in their surroundings. Some of the songs, such as “Fine Line” almost have a vintage quality to them while “I’m Gonna Find Out Some Day” gives the hooks of a modern classic of a band with experience.
