Album Review: Playlounge - Pilot
Who: London based two piece who make a lovely noise.
What: Their debut album. A longly awaiting one at that! 
Why: Because it’s fuzzy and noisy but also thoughtful and melodic and beautiful. Playlounge combine lush guitar chords and in-depth lyricisms with crashing drums and scuzzy, distorted guitar sounds to make a really glorious racket. Every track here just takes you by the hand and makes you want to have summer romance or runaway to another the part of the world and jump in lakes and stuff! There’s a real youthful exuberance to this record that I love but the lyrics are really thoughtful and ponder most of the things on my mind, which also gives its a really personal, private element. This record has been a few years in the wait, but is certainly worth it!

SEAHAVEN w/ Nai Harvest + Battle Lines // Green Door Store // 17/4/2014

The relaxed melodies and distinctive anthem-like sound of Seahaven topped off a brilliant night of music, as the American five-piece impressed on the opening night of their UK tour.

Battle Lines opened the night with a showcase of their hard-hitting dream-pop in an impressively tight half hour set. The electronica influences shone through as synth patterns were expanded upon with guitar drones, which sat underneath Melanie Gardiner’s punchy vocals. Big, feedback-ridden outros gripped the crowd as the Leeds-based four-piece impressed early on.

Nai Harvest were next up on the bill. The band consists of frontman and guitarist, Ben Thompson and drummer, Lew Currie. Thompson uses an array of pedals and line switchers to alter between guitar and bass tones, creating an impressive illusion of a full band, sitting on top of Currie’s emo-influenced, crowded drum patterns. The two-piece began their set with popular track, Whatever, before playing through newly released EP, Hold Open My Head in it’s entirety.

Headliners, Seahaven then took to the stage. Recent release, Reverie Lagoon: Music For Escapism Only, saw the group replace their heavier style with dreamy, prettier tones. Rhythmically, the original, rocky vibe has faded, however this was made up for with long, progressive riffs and electric energy.

Crunchy riffs opened before slow-building melodic layers mellowed out the second half of the gig. Syncopated drums kept an original feel to the music and the various guitar tracks allowed frontman, Kyle Soto’s captivating vocals to sit perfectly in the mix.

The band seemed determined to keep their audience intrigued, altering the atmosphere by varying the intensity of songs. Soto put on a chilling solo performance of Honeybee, before the conversing guitar tones of It’s Over brought a heavier feel back to the show with it’s clean and fuzzy tones.

An ambient sample was played between tracks, creating haunting, ambient fills. However, this effect quickly became repetitive and felt overused.

Seahaven’s rich sound combined perfectly with a vibrant performance. The band’s new-found authenticity clearly shows they are moving in a positive direction.
