British rockers The Loft Club have cleverly delivered an eclectic and electronic collection of songs on their debut EP ‘Heart’s Desire‘.
The band consists of Daniel Schamroth, Jamie Whyte, Kieran Chalmers, Amy O’Loughlin and Dan Wright. Their Heart’s Desire EP is a unique blend of calmness, head nodding and grooving.
The band are one of so many new rock bands in 2017, so new listeners might expect the usual from a rock band, generic melodies and riffs. But not these, instead the Loft Club take you on a journey with each track being uniquely different, in sound and genre!
Heart’s Desire is first, and it’s mid-tempo, guitar heavy rock’n’roll song which immediately swings the needle to a definite “Yes, these are British”.
Another song “I’m Just A Man” is in a similar ballpark but cooler, with heavy bass. A genre changing, bluesy number.
The band also shows that it can excel when it slows down on “Flicker” and “Sticks and Stones” both creating a tantalizing atmosphere, demonstrating that the band knows how to be powerfully emotional at lower volume.
The EP ends upbeat, with a dance remix of Heart’s Desire, another genre they pull off in style, making you want to get up out of your seat.
After listening to the EP, it’s clear that The Loft Club give many emotions, from soft guitar ballads, to bass heavy rhythms, to soulful blues, to melodic dance grooves, they have it all.
They are compared to Fleetwood Mac, with 1960s influences. Britain in the early 1960s was swarmed with rock’n’roll bands, most notably The Beatles. Throughout the decades to follow too with the Rolling Stones, the Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Clash, and Queen, just to name some of the most famous ones. U2 (not strictly British but signed to a British label with two members born in the UK) were shifting millions of records in the late ’80s and ’90s.
The band has created a riveting debut that shows exactly why well known music label Lightyear Entertainment have got behind them. It’s a straight-up rock’n’roll EP that has arrived just in time to start blaring loudly on hot summer days and nights.
The Loft Club are not here to rock your socks off, rather take you on a flamboyant journey of genres and emotions, they have lots to offer. A band with a fresh difference, and one to watch.
