The Sydney based 5-piece band Gypsies & Gentlemen have been playing their solid rock to Australian crowds since 2010.
This really is a cracking band. Imaginative guitar tones. Cool melodies. Danceable rhythms.
So we were pleased to hear new single ‘Blood Is Sweeter’ — produced, engineered and mixed by Tim Carr at Studios 301.
Larger-than-life sparkling guitars surf-twang and barrel themselves around the bottom end of the biggest baddest bass-sounds you have heard for a long while…
Mumbling and bumbling like a hung-over Tibetan blue bear woken up early by the postman.
These are huge swathing curtains of guitar — plus a lot of Da-da-da’s.
The main voice [Alex Zucchi] sounds like a sob… Lost in an empty cave.
And the song (almost) culminates with an exhausted guitar yawning its overburdened existence at the very last gasp.
Powerful and anthemic power-pop rock with unflinching, haunted vocals and guitar sounds that seem to be scooped-out husks of something that once was vivid.
