Jacob & Goliath – Eyes Conveyed ★★★★★

By: editor

Jacob & Goliath have serious swagger! A quirky, awkward kind of swagger, but it works. It’s definitely a refreshing approach to what has become arguably a “stale” genre. Those with the similar opinion would also believe that too many bands are playing indie by numbers these days, so it’s nice, infact very nice to have a band embrace their inner oddballs.

Lead man Jacob displays some great vocals, with wonderfully rough flourishes that seem to slip out completely naturally. None of that forced rock star sound here. The whole band plays with a kind of dangerously cool attitude that isn’t often seen in this genre, carried along by the punchy drums and laid back guitar providing some more folksy moments.

This London three piece have shown enough here to stand out from a very over populated crowd, and for that they should be commended. The quirks feel organic here rather than put on for the sake of sounding different. That, I like.

I approve.
