| Pat Kay and the Gajos (PT/FR/...)
|Rock with soul. Rock with character.
Pat Kay and co. released two years ago Montmartre, the debut album for this Paris-based project.
Pat, Jap, Victor, Valerie and Mitch, together with guest Adolfo Luxuria Canibal prepared 12 songs where melancholy meets claustrophobia meets controlled madness meets enigmatic melodies.
Remarkable, cavernous and slowly wispered sexy poetry. Catchy and tempting chorus.
Track after track, these songs keep suprising us with their constant mutations. They move from one direction to another, keeping only some traces to the music we listened minutes before.
With lyrics in English, French and Portuguese; inspired in bands such as Mao Morta, Tindersticks, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds or Leonard Cohen, it is difficult not to feel attracted to their music, to this variety of sounds, melodies and moods.
As we listen to Urgency, You Said,Pressure, Fisherman's Wife, Montmartre ou Noite Baca, we are taken into several different worlds. Spoken word, alternative, jazz, post rock and pop. Even though some songs fall into the universe of the above mentioned projects, the rest of this debut completes it wisely, giving a different look to this release.
