Club NME - PLAYED ON: Friday 23 November 2012

EYES ON FILM

CATFISH & THE BOTTLEMEN

Gig info

Sometimes a great band comes out of nowhere and gives you that electric shock.

Eyes On Film have managed to find their own space in the endless avalanche of bands with a rush of great songs driven by the hungry beats of a drum machine that swerves from neo dubstep rhythms to the timeless chug of old skool eighties drum machine rock n rollers. All this is cranked through some wicked distortion and then slashed with a filthy sex guitar that makes the band sound fiercely contemporary with a 21st century urgency.

They then twist this with those kind of hushed shy boy vocals like prime time Jesus And The Mary Chain that gives the whole sound a thrillingly, delicious commercial edge with the right kind of filth to tear it up at the festivals and sneak onto daytime radio.

Eyes On Film make the complex sound simple and put the human into the machine, their songs are gloriously scuzzy and capture the distorted thrill of prime time indie and the incessant jackhammer of dirty electronics, it's a thrilling combination when it's done right and they are the first band to get the balance perfect for a long time.
