A Better Noise Presents….Charalambides

May 15, 2012

A Better Noise (Newcastle’s finest experimental gig promoters) are bringing the Northern city another musical outing in the form of Charalambides.

The Texas based outfit revolves around the primary songwriters Tom Carter and Christina Carter. The music they produces is phenomenal. It’s got a really great feel to it that I don’t really get from anything else. They produce beautiful soundscapes that are almost dream like. Found in those soundscapes are little details that really stand out and add a luscious quality to the music. Hazy, yet beautiful vocals, folk inspired guitar work and plenty of other strange and mysterious noises. The way everything is layered on top of each other really gives a thick, dense sound which draws similarities to the work of Vibracathedral Orchestra. It really feels overwhelming the way that everything builds up into the rich noises you get at the end of their songs, I’ve got a feeling it will sound amazing live. There is a really great psychedelic vibe present throughout which I’m really into at the minute. Have a listen to ‘Before You Go’, from their 2011 LP ‘Exile’.

It promises to be a delightful gig. Unfortunately, I’m unable to attend as I’ll be in Barcelona for Primavera Sound Festival. That’s why I’m writing this. I’m honestly gutted I can’t attend so I think all of you that can should make the effort and see them play. Also, it’s in the great little venue, Morden Tower.

Support on the night comes from two local talents: Richard Dawson and Charles Dexter Ward.
