Deaf Club #3 - Moving Still

Deaf Club return with their third release in just over a year, the fabulous 7" single Moving Still, two tracks which confirm what I already knew, the confident young Welsh/London based quintet are one of the most exciting guitar based bands around today.

Take the title track "Moving Still" for instance, from its moody slow motion introduction and the alluring vocals of Polly Mackey contrast with powerful, shimmering textures, it catches your attention with brooding mysticims. Flip side "Lights" could be even better, similarly ambient and dramatic it builds up in tempo to a fantastic finale of guitar soundscapes and crashing tom beats. You can order the 7" via Piccadilly Records here if it takes your fancy.

I've not seen the band since a fanastic slot at The Great Escape, I was at Latitude for their single launch with fellow blog favourites Tripwires but Deaf Club do play again in London next week along with Carousels in what promises to be a great night, it's the day after my birthday so I'll have to wait and see how my head feels before committing to a trip to London!
