The Dawn Chorus / The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Blogging all over the World

My name is Kyle. I am a happily failing indie/punk/folk/country/rock musician from Hampshire, UK. I have been singing and songwriting in The Dawn Chorus since 2005, and The Retrospective Soundtrack Players since 2010. I love these two bands like my brother/wife rolled into one. This blog details the shows I have played with both bands, in chronological order.

Thursday, February 22, 2007 Review - I am Moz!

From the South Coast, The Dawn Chorus are every bit as radiant and tuneful as their name suggests. Title track 'The Man That I Held In My Arms' is akin to a more jaunty Libertines, minus the East London cool, while the rushing acoustics of the song and subject matter worthy of a certain Stephen Morrissey makes this a compelling start to the demo that's bursting with vivacity. 'Winter' reinforces their organic band name, starting with a chorus of birds before the song commences. When it does, the lilting vocals of Kyle Evans spur the song along, which slightly invokes Coldplay/Starsailor atmospherics and comparisons. Harmonies provided by bassist Keef Evans and Matt Simpson lend a powerful crescendo to the song that rides tandem with an equally explosive ending. 'Little Pinpricks' alters the perception of the 'Chorus as just another melodic four piece indie/acoustic act, with some neat instrumental arrangements that sit well with their catchy, song structures. A vertiginous rise to fame is by no means beyond their capability, so what are you waiting for?
