Crisp and rigid sounds to rock from Rocheii

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

ARE you tired of not car­ing about who wins TV’s karaoke show The Voice? Want to wit­ness some­thing that has orig­i­nal­ity and in­tegrity? Then get your­self down to the Crown and Treaty pub on Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge this Fri­day where there will be at least two live bands that will never have to go through the pa­tro­n­i­sa­tion mill of what Wil­lIAM, Boy Ge­orge and the other two think of them.

Four guys known as Rocheii of­fer an elec­tro laden, in­die pop gui­tar filled se­lec­tion of in­ter­est­ingly ar­ranged and ex­pertly per­formed songs, pic­tured.

Plenty of pro­gres­sive stops and starts cen­tred on tremen­dously tight drum­ming with well ex­pressed vo­cals flour­ished by per­fect har­monies this is a band that’ll ren­der the harsh­est crit­ics re­dun­dant.

Man­cu­nian singer/song­writer Calvin Roche, from whom the band take their name, has only been in Lon­don a year yet Rocheii are as crisp and rigid as though they’dhey’d been at it for decades. Hear them out here www.soundcloud.com/rochei­iof­fi­cial

Steal­ing Signs hail­ing from Es­sex also play The Treaty this Fri­day. Also a four piece and with a funky ska white soul vibe per­me­at­ing through the strata of their sound you’ll surely be mov­ing your feet to their well thought out and groovy beats.

It’s just £5 en­try to the Crown and Treaty on Fri­day but if you get there be­fore 10pm it’s ab­so­lutely free.

Be sure to tune into my in­ter­ac­tive HayesFM ra­dio show EV­ERY Tues­day at 9pm to hear live and orig­i­nal per­form­ers. PLUS more lo­cal live mu­sic news. You can find HayesFM on 91.8fm in Lon­don or GLOBAL on www. hayesfm.org.uk
