Nos­tal­gic sound is sure to have wide ap­peal

Shepparton News - - WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
