Instore Review: Cymbals Eat Guitars @ Pure Groove 10th July 2009

Cymbals Eat Guitars

Quick review:

Good indie rock. A fun, energetic and very loud set with sporadic mellow moments aided by the presence of a synth. Occasional guitar screams and low key whammy bar wiggles added some interesting extra sounds into the mix (thankfully they weren't at all 'showy offy' in a rock God sense) and the steady upbeat drums kept me focused and my head nodding during the more chaotic guitar/vocal moments.

An engaging performance but I'm not sure whether it was unfamiliarity with the songs or the actual songs themselves that prevented me from being totally won over. Would definitely see them again but feel I would benefit from having listened to some of their recorded material first.

They're supporting the Flaming Lips in November. I guess I'll see them then.
