Andy Quick

Diamond Sounds EP Review

Quote from Bio:- Formed in Sept 2016 in a living room in Devon The Andy Quick Band hit the ground running with a highly original debut Album 'The Way Things Are' recorded at the infamous Middle Farm Studio and packed with big riffs and playful lyricism "...soulful, funky, and bursting with confidence..."
- THE DAILY JAM.

Based in the west country, Andy has such a diverse musical sound that you will find it almost impossible to pigeon hole him into one particular genre.

 

Track list:-

1. 'Tarantula'

2. 'Caned And Able'

3. 'More Man Than Monkey'

4. 'Blood'

Third track on the EP is the strangely titled 'More Man Than Monkey'. Again this has more of a spoken lyrical vibe with fantastic musicianship creating a vibrant feel to this track.

 

Last track is titled 'Blood' and has a funky Caribbean feel and sound, lyrically and musically.

This EP is definitely an eclectic mix of musical styles, but somehow works to bring you a first class recording. Two Finger Media gives this a 4/5.

 

 

This latest EP titled 'Diamond Sounds' consists of 4 tracks, each one as different as the last. 

We start with a track called 'Tarantula' with its crazy guitar intro before being joined by the drums then the vocals kick in sounding a bit like Ian Dury. The overall feel is of a track that keeps building and building in intensity, reaching a crescendo with a rap......

Next up we have 'Caned And Able' with its blues ridden John Lee Hooker vibe, all brought together with some wonderful gruff vocals and driving beat.
