The Rock-itt : December 2010
(pun not intended). Recording All kicked it into overdrive and had the female population of the crowd bouncing around from wall to wall with their infectious Pop/Punk grooves. Although having an average age of 14, the boys delivered a driving set which revolved around the soaring and suitable vocals of front man Luke McChesney. The 3 piece were dynamic and a whole lot of fun, with a well put together rendition of Wham’s “Wake me up before you go go” getting the large crowd going from the start. Standing Silence strutted their stuff next, launching their debut EP “For Your Amusement”. The 5 piece comprised a set full of most of the material off the EP, showcasing their blend of groovy guitar melodies with a dynamic female vocal, combining perfectly to create a new and unique sound, steering clear of the tag that any band gets these days when a girl/woman/lady (whatever suits you) is at the helm. Cohesion was the focus, and crowd appreciation was the goal, with this being achieved as the crowd screamed for more, ultimately getting a killer encore, with the classic “Low” closing the set. Seek the Silence closed out what was a huge night of local talent with an emphatic and slightly entertaining showcase. With the familiar Jaws theme bellowing through the Centre, those that stuck around got loose and rowdy, getting in on the nonstop party that the 5 piece were conveying. Covering all corners of their material, Seek the Silence got the crowd going from beginning to end, with the groovy inclusion of Tim Rudder (and his blow up crocodile counterpart) on saxophone in “Take Me Away” capitulating what was all in all, 40 minutes of fun. Closing with an all in to Sum 41’s teen classic “In Too Deep”, the boys played full of life and loved every second of it. All up, a very fun night was had by all. A big thanks to Justin and everyone from YOYOs for putting the show together, and for everyone that turned out on the night and supported the Local Beaches music.
