*EARLY SHOW* Strange Blue Dreams + Noah
Entry Requirements: 18+
Soaring vocal harmonies, dance beats from New Orleans and the rhythm sections of RCA and the other great Record labels of the mid 20th Century, the songs of singer and guitarist Dave Addison are brought to life by the band's atmospheric arrangements. Double bass and mandolin, instruments often associated with americana or folk music are used to make surf music and 50's film noir soundtracks blend seamlessly on 'Reverberatin’ Love', the group's first single. The guitars play balkan melodies and spaghetti western themes alongside their hot r&b and twanging jazz, and in the case of songs like 'Electricity', use Joe Meek's approach to create an otherworldly pop music from rock n' roll.
