Hey guys!! I dunno how I missed this cuz I think it’s been around for a minute, but I wanted to share with you another fun band. Taking their influences from the likes of Parklife era Blur and Pulp, Manchester’s Performance make some catchy, snarky pop music! I have blogged about 2 of Performances members previously — their electro pop project, Kiss in Cities, is one of my favorite new bands.
While Kiss in Cities and Performance share electronic pop elements and the ability to craft great melodies, Performance is a more somber affair. The tone is darker (maybe a bit more sneering) but more epic (arena rock!!!) without the dayglo club feel. Performance has already released a passable album, but if their newer singles, Reptile and Living, are any indication, the band is only now hitting it’s stride.No comments
