The Heavy

18.7.2013 >> LP48!

(UK) Särmä on olennainen tekijä brittiläisen rock & soul -yhtyeen menossa, mutta sen vastineeksi kvartetista löytyy myös koskettavaa herkkyyttä. Nuoresta iästään huolimatta Kelvyn Swaby on vanhan liiton laulaja ja bändin rikas sointi kulkee useammalla vaihteella. Hieno rytmiikka saa seuraa sydäntä raastavista balladeista musiikin peilatessa psykedelistä garage-rockia siinä kuin kauhuelokuvien soundtrackeja ja hiphoppiakin. Swaby ja kitaristi Dan Taylor ystävystyivät jo 1998 huomatessaan yhteisen intohimonsa vanhaan R&B:iin ja Jim Jarmuschin elokuviin. Melko pian he jo kasasivat The Heavyn, mutta ensimmäinen single ja albumi Great Vengeance & Furious Fire saatiin markkinoille vasta 2007. Seuraavana vuonna bändi mainittiin varteenotettavana tekijänä lehdissä, kuten Spin ja Rolling Stone. Kakkosalbumi The House That Dirt Built ilmestyi 2009. Sähäkän bändin kappaleita kuultiin useassa elokuvassa ja mainoksissa. Kolmosta kypsyteltiin pitkään, mutta niinpä monella viime vuoden ”best of” -listalla nähty The Glorious Dead osuukin lähelle napakymppiä. Laulut ovat upeita, energia hurja ja sointi poikkeuksellisen omaperäisesti värikäs.
