Electrical Language – Demo & Live

May 17, 2009

Electrical Language

(formally The Up, Darren Jones Band)

2009 Demo


Xander say’s…

Here lies a great act just waiting to be discovered! Still a fairly new band to the scene and needing a few more gigs under the belt to build some confidence, but getting to a great start with venues such as The Musician in Leicester.

Walking on stage, the three timid guys don’t strike you as a band, but when that first chord strikes and Darren starts singing, all pauses. The demo displays tones of Starsailor and James Morrison mixed with some country slides, whilst live I get more of a feel of Eric Clapton for the guitar. I like the composure of the tracks and it would definitely be great to see these guys work with a good producer for a more advanced recording in the future. The band has the sound for a live performance, especially with Darrens striking voice, so some summer gigs and festivals will give them the boost to fill the stage to their potential.

Demo – ★★★✩✩ | Live – ★★★✩✩✩

Tina say’s…

I think the best way to describe the sound of Electrical Language is “easy like Sunday morning”. Their songs are catchy, mellow and pleasing. The band’s demo perfectly captures what they have to offer as a country/indie/rock group and bears similarities to the likes of Pete Yorn, Ryan Adams and Andrew Bird. Darren’s vocals are quite simply delicious and it is an overall very easy to listen to CD.

Though their live shows lack a sense of captivating entertainment, Electrical Language could most definitely provide the perfect summer soundtrack to those long warm evenings sitting in a field having a cheeky cider.

Demo – ★★★★✩ | Live – ★★★✩✩
