The Statics at The Thomas House – Photos & Review
The Statics played Thomas House on Saturday, July 6th.
Having been following The Statics for some time, I have never had the chance to see them live and I was immensely excited for their show. Support came from the wonderful Zebra, who blew the roof off the venue with some powerful and catchy songs and superb on stage energy.
Keith Moss & The Tightrope Walkers also supported and started the night off on a high with beautifully melodic songs, they also had the crowd laughing with a couple of jokes in between songs which got the crowd pumped for the main act.
The Statics took to the stage just after 10.30 with the crowd applauding for them to begin, including myself.
Having just released their debut EP ‘The Hidden Pigeon’ which received a lot of positive reviews, we are sure to hear a lot more from The Statics in the coming future and they can only get bigger and better.
Lead singer Liam Gardner took to the mic and began the set.
The band’s conviction and outstanding live performance show us just how comfortable they are on stage and with their melodic and exceptionally written songs they leave the audience wanting more and more as they finish each song. As they perform one songs like Had It Too and People Talk you get that feeling that you’ve gone back in time as their whole style and sound remind you of the 60’s, while at the same time Liams vocals remind us of The Arctic Monkeys.
Much of The Statics songs continue to reflect their influences from The Beatles to The Stones and you get a sense that 2013 is going to be a big year for them.
The Statics played a sensational gig at Thomas House and having thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish I am left listening to their EP on repeat!
