It’s a birds and the bees sort of question… Or maybe a chicken or the egg sort of question…What came first the rosined violin strings, major falls, classical theory or the smashed guitars, split finger tips and sweaty bodies?
To see the Balconies play is nothing short of grasping at science. Even when placed down neatly in a Petri dish underneath thumbs and forefingers – the DNA-code of their infectious pop hooks interweaved with classical sensibility and theory is hard to discern. At what point did their university-learned mastery of classical theory give birth to their understanding of rock and roll energy and pop structuring? Hence the whole chicken-or-the-egg conundrum…
The Balconies leave a trail of exploded speakers and broken drumsticks in their wake. So if you’re not interested in sparring vocals, feedback, whipping hair, sweaty bodies, dancing drums and bottom-heavy bass lines, steer clear of the Balconies.
