British band The Loft Club sent across their new EP release, and I’m glad they did. Daniel Schamroth, Jamie Whyte, Kieran Chalmers, Amy O’Loughlin and Dan Wright make up the band, who have been compared to Buffalo Springfield in the past. The EP consists of 5 songs, all of which give you a different feeling, while at the same time slotting perfectly together. There’s “Heart’s Desire”, a deep drum and guitar driven song that introduces the EP perfectly, leading into the delightfully melodic “Flicker”, followed by “I’m Just a Man”, a rock ballad “Sticks and Stones” and finally an electronic remix of “Heart’s Desire” to end the EP in uplifting spirits. If the ‘Heart’s Desire’ EP is a taster of what’s to come, then expect one of the best new and rather great bands to emerge from British shores in a while. The Loft Club are the first band I have heard that mix classic rock with electronic dance, all with a very melodic flow. Just great!
