Chest up: Cuzins the Band and Lombardy review

Cuzins the Band and Lombardy review

Lombardy – Never Gonna Get It

Genre: Hard Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: Rage Against The Machine, Black Keys, Jack White, The Raconteurs, Audioslave, Red Hot Chili Peppers

I usually approach bands describing their music as “anthemic” with trepidation. First of all, who really enjoys anthems? Do people go to sporting events and anxiously wait to rise and belt out the national anthem with thousands of tone-deaf strangers? 

Is anyone secretly hoping that they’ll be commissioned to write an anthem? That might be awkward. It’s one thing to write one for a new republic, it’s another to write a chest thumper about toothpaste. Although, for the right sum of money, I am sure that it can be done. 

With that being said, Lombardy’s Never Gonna Get It sounds massive, unignorable, the kind of thing that drunk football fans might be chanting. You know. It’s … err… give it a name… anthemic. Who knew the blues could be so arousing? 


Cuzins the Band – Warrior

Genre: Psychedelic Rock, Pop Rock, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: The Black Keys, Soundgarden, Roots, N.E.R.D.

People, naturally, look to make sense of the world around them. One of the strategies that they use for this is labelling. It’s better to know which jar holds the tea, and which has the coffee. You wouldn’t want to get your butter mixed with your jam when enjoying your ideal breakfast? 

The obsession expectedly extends to music. It doesn’t always serve the fans’ best interests. Sure, in the past, a fan could waltz into a record store and pick up a number of releases all stacked under the name of their favourite “genre”. But, does this help anymore? Should you really trust algorithms to tell you what you might enjoy? 

If that’s the case, Cuzins the Band might suffer for their imaginative, far-reaching sound. Warrior isn’t an attempt at a cookie-cutter style of music. It’s a really good embrace of a number of styles. It’s a demonstration of the players’ great technical abilities. And, it sounds mysterious and confounding, in the same way, that your favourite records must have sounded the very first time that you heard them.
