Showing great style in the older districts of melancholy and ruin…
It starts with hushed lullaby tones, gentle plucked violins, fragile guitar and the shadow of a bird in flight before exploding into thick saxophones, cavernous drums, fleeting electronics, string swells and troubled souls burning through the night to the sound of falling cows in Dalston Kingsland. Will These Things See You Right opens Band of Holy Joy’s latest greatest album Easy Listening – a set that finds Johny Brown’s ragamuffin street warriors hit yet another artistic peak – a rejuvenated collective on a relentless mission. Away from the complex conceptual conceits of How to Kill a Butterfly and the raging Casio trauma of City of Tales, Easy Listening has a defiantly old –school manifesto – a beautiful collection of brilliantly sculpted, profoundly resonant, captivating, thrilling, devastating songs…
There is still only one Band of Holy Joy and here they are at their finest.
