MySpace Review 鈥 Ladydoll

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, MySpace Review with tags , , , , on October 20, 2009 by Tickets There


The first ever Irish Music Television Awards have been announced and Tickets There…isn鈥檛 that interested. No mention of Humanzi’s Bass Balls video so could care less. Also, Jape is in there for some reason with Floating…despite the fact that video’s years old. Guess there just isn鈥檛 that many great Irish music videos out this year. If they are including old video’s, Directors鈥 Come With A Friend, Future Kings of Spain, Syndicate and …maybe Revelate should have been in there. Anyways, won鈥檛 get bogged down in that yet, I’ll do another blog later with all the details. Back to the Review. One of this year鈥檚 candidates for Best Live Video caught my eye. Ladydoll hail from Cork and I don鈥檛 know a damn thing about them…but they sound ok, so let’s give them a go.

As usual, I’ve never seen the band…you get the gist.

So, first up is Hunnybunny. Pretty Heavy intro. I always like loud guitars to kick things off, gets the blood going. Sounds like something very familiar. I’m not a big fan of this whiney kind of Emo voice but the music is pretty sweet. Really good production on the bass and guitars giving the song a real tight feeling. I see other writers have compared them to the Smashing Pumpkins but I wouldn鈥檛 get that from this track, it’s more upbeat than the Pumpkins. Not a bad number. I鈥檇 happily listen to it again.

Second track’s called Genetics and it鈥檚 got a totally different vide. Guitars, vocals and style completely change. There a nice piano melody over some pretty sweet start / stop indie. Singers voice is also alot strong when he鈥檚 not trying to whinge into the mike. Just slightly all over the place but interesting and hooky. Call me kooky, call me whacky but I like it. There’s an enormous feel to their sound and Tickets There likes grandeur. I think this would work well as a geek anthem. With a chorus comprised of the following line “It鈥檚 all about Genetics“, what else could it be?

Ah, final song’s called Charm Alarm and its style is similar to Genetics. The singer’s voice reverts to the style of Honeybunny which is unfortunate. Ireland has enough emo / American wannabe’s, but this lot aren鈥檛 the worst of them. Still a catchy song but not one TT would be rushing back to hear.

Well, not the worst. Not the best. You can do better, that鈥檚 all I鈥檒l say.
