Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore…
One of the best things about going to live shows is discovering new bands that are opening for your favourite bands. One of my long-time favourite bands is finally stopping by in London town this weekend. Since I will be there, it came naturally to become familiar with the support acts as well. And what a gem I have found!
Beautiful Bodies from Kansas City, MO have come a long way from home as they are currently busy spreading rock music across the UK. I quite literally fell in love with their 2015 debut album Battles this afternoon – what has been on repeat since. Not only it is John Feldmann produced (of course…I can’t seem to have a favourite album that isn’t his doing since 2004) but it is full of empowering anthems that beg to be screamed at the top of your lungs – like “Invincible” and “War Inside Your Heart” – while songs like “She’s A Blast” and “Subversive Lover” has true rock and roll vibes written all over them.
I love the way they’re blending modern pop-rock with PVRIS-like electronics and exuberant sound that brings the 80’s era of alternative rock to mind. I am definitely eager to see what the future holds to this band, and cannot wait to catch them live.
