From the spirited roadhouse sensibilities of ‘I’ll Never Know’ you sense that the band closing Saucy Sundays are going to bring it. The vocals here are also a different affair that works alongside the tempo rather well. The correlation brings an efficiency to bear, while the suggestive prestige gathered gives it an open ebb and flow. The notable way that the weight of the play cuts to the chase shows as it takes flight. This in turn also situates the underground calling of everything in the right way. With second track ‘How Does It Feel?’ they also develop a fortunate sense of worth. The rhythm moves through it and cuts across in the right way. The intelligent structure on show gauges everything. This comes to pass in a way that sees the lyrics become situated where they need to be from the approach. Confirming the presence of the band is ‘Ok’. Here the tempo collects in a fluid way. That is then extended throughout. It has a mainstream feel about it and that hardens the pitch here. As edgy as it is there is also a light retro touch about it all.
The closeness of ‘13TH Of June’ steadies the delivery and guides it through. The deftness of touch is what guides it through. That shows in a telling way here as it is all carried off. It is also interesting to see how the guitar drifts through in the pitch because it makes it sound all the more attractive. Their best song has to be ‘Why Can’t We Be Like Them?’ It picks up off the back of a strong bass riff and lean guitar. They also catch something in the way the vocals and lyrics are keyed in. That is carried across with great significance. It adds an advantageous sense of revelry in the chic touches as well as giving off a The Strokes apparel. ‘Love The Way Your Gone’ is a more glorious offering. The synth richly allows them to embrace an indie-disco vibe. In the lyrical narrative the features are defined. Yet something in the undertone takes hold and lays on the style. The precision in the weight steadies the running through the even way it progresses from the opening. In doing so everything is brought full circle to the indie-disco sound on the opening but in an evolved way musically. Offering an interesting contrast in the paunched nou-disco sound is their closing number ‘Over My Head’. It is rather chic. Incorporating a metronome into the beat furnishes it with a level of cool that is called upon suitably. It is all worked in and it all works out excellently. As it does so an air of confidence is exuded in the performance that matches the stage presence.
