Nostalgic sound is sure to have wide appeal
The fourth album from Aussie rock band Luca Brasi touches on the teenage-emo feels just ever so slightly. The 11-track album, Stay, has a modernised punk/rock sound giving nostalgic feelings of listening to the likes of Fallout Boy and Panic! At The Disco.
But despite the punky vocal sounds, this four-piece out of Tasmania has a much more modern sound with beautiful melodic guitar and drum sounds combined.
Picture a scaled-back Violent Soho sound and you’ll get somewhere close to these St Helens exports who formed in 2009.
Stay is an easy listen with just 11 tracks including a musical prelude track, named after the album.
While the group’s songs do have a tendency to sound incredibly similar, Luca Brasi knows how to write a catchy chorus and does it perfectly in songs Got to Give and Clothes I Slept In. Another album standout is Let It Slip. Made up of members Thomas Busby on lead guitar, Danny Flood on drums, Patrick Marshall on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Tyler Richardson on lead vocals and bass guitar, Luca Brasi has a classic bandcreated sound.
Stay was released in June and is the band’s Årst album to be released via Cooking Vinyl Australia.
The album peaked at number 10 on the ARIA charts which is not surprising considering the band’s wide-appeal sound.
You won’t quite picture yourself with a teased fringe and heavy eye makeup while listening to Stay but you will surely be transported back to those emo-esque sounds of the early noughties.
