“I’ll be your animal, animal” sings Scott. Yet the lead vocalist is as clean-cut as an estate agent. Could you imagine soemone less beastly?
Nevertheless, the vocals are electrifying. Scott reaches reckless highs and prudent lows.
And the guitar-work is expertly rendered. Incidentally, the ballet dancing video [see below] is pretty hot too.
The ILLUSTR8ORS from Bristol, UK used to be known as BlackWolf.
But after a nip and a tuck they have returned in a new form — perceptive, crisp, knavish and business-like.
The band’s soon-to-be-released self-titled EP [out 14th October 2016 ] is keen, groovy and melodious.
If you like your rock to be smart ‘n’ level-headed then this could be right up your street. Check out their October live dates [below vid]
