NYC band on the rise: Lurve plays FUZZ on 04.25

NYC band on the rise: Lurve plays FUZZ on 04.25

Promising Brooklyn dream rockers Lurve will play a show on April 25th at FUZZ (59 Canal St.) with Team Spirit and Cool Serbia. The band has three tracks available for streaming on their Soundcloud page: “Looks So Young” (streaming) quickly establishes a penchant for guitar driven rock, with a hooky chord change that fans of Dinosaur would surely love. “Wires” kicks it all up one notch higher with a faster tempo, while multiple guitar layers buzz like bees under smooth, reverbed vocals. The tracks closing jam-out takes its cue from Sonic Youth’s tandem of Thurston and Lee, while incorporating their own twists along the way. Closing track “Simple Syrup” on the other hand employs the quick turnaround chord changes that made iconic 90’s band The Pixies such a hit with what was once called the "alternative nation." Another extended guitar solo deftly incorporates the best of both The Pixies Joey Santiago’s and Dinosaur Jr.’s J. Mascis’ styles into their own, for an exciting final result. -Dave Cromwell
