“One of the best bands on the planet-and England too” – STEVEN VAN ZANDT (Little Steven)

The CONTRAST is a Peterborough based band who admittedly is bigger “over there” than here. Not surprising really as they had previously been signed to USA based labels including Van Zandt’s own label Wicked Cool Records and have released six albums over the past decade.

For their seventh album they have signed to a UK based label and are embarking on a UK tour to promote the album culminating with a support slot at MOTT THE HOOPLE’S Manchester Apollo November 17th date as bassist OVEREND WATTS special guests.

“A Sinister Flick” is a stunning new album that shows clearly why this guitar driven power pop four piece can eloquently produce an album full of great melodies and short catchy songs. Quite simply The Contrast are a band that has unintentionally combined the best elements of different bands into something that is uniquely their own.

Reviews

This is a very enjoyable bunch of pop/indie rock tunes, with opener 'We Are The Monsters' sounding like classic R.E.M. meets the Godfathers and one for the airwaves. 'Balloon Man' is one of those songs that wriggles into your consciousness and doesn't let go, plus love the Byrds approved guitar break midway through. Further 60's influence on the groovy 'There's Always A Chance' and on 'Stick Man' they sound a little like the Levellers. At sixteen songs you certainly get VFM.
