Recently listed in the Marie Claire UK Playlist alongside Florence and the Machine and I Blame Coco, 2011 is proving to be an enormous year for the unsigned band, Auction for the Promise Club. From St Agnes, Cornwall – the band comprising of Zoe (guitars and vocals) Perran (guitar and keyboards) and Toby on drums play hastily paced punky rock with danceable undertones.
Their new recording ‘Dancer (Running in the Dust)’ is now available from their soundcloud site at: http://soundcloud.com/auctionforthepromiseclub.
We had a quick listen:
Ice cubes chink against glass sides and spikes of crystal pierce the air. Then Zoe’s silvery vocals add acidic and frosty patterns- yet retain enough gluey substance to ensure that the chorus lingers long afterwards in your mind and in your heart… “Running in the dust, running in the dust…” Glitter guitars create rainbows of airborne droplets, , adding perfumed air to the generally cheery, yet blowy, landscape. An airy, blustery and charmingly chiming song. – © Neil_Mach 2011
