Keston Cobblers Club, Siren Review
Keston Cobblers Club, is a brother and sister duo consisting of Matthew and Julia Lowe, joined by school friends Tom Sweet and Harry Stasinopoulos. Together they are winning an army of fans with their genuine music. Over the last few years, Keston Cobblers Club have been steadily building a name for themselves. Their debut album One, For Words quietly released in 2012, followed by two EPs, A Scene of Plenty. 2014 saw A Pocket Guide to Escaping. Then in 2015 came Wildfire which became the groups true breakout album, garnering heavy praise. Their last album, Almost Home, further increasing their following, with a European headline tour. Now in 2019, their impending album Siren is set to release in April.Positives: Memorable songwriting, coupled with equally memorable performances. Kston Cobblers Club takes the moxie from each collective member and brews up a very interesting and tasty musical recipe. Bottom Line: Keston Cobblers Club is a large collective of equally minded musicians who have come together to create a magnificent sound. Their songs are based in creative stories that linger in your soul. Songs like “Siren,” offer a cinematic feeling of textural delights with a folkish depth. While, “Here’s the Truth,” which is also supported with a video, is focused in a more organic sound with jangling guitar augmented by guests, Ralph Pelleymounter from To Kill A King, Johnny Abraham from Public Service Broadcasting and Jenny from Jenny and The Mexicats among others. “Esta,” has a 60s folk writer sonic to it, with prophetic harmonies and once again Matthew Lowes voice is stunning. On “Want You,” the tapestry takes a different feel, large production with concert drums. Julia created her own video on this one, and her comedic approach is nothing less than brilliant, ooops sorry or should I say “Jules.” She states, “This is a film about what Insta-love is like, today.” This song is so worth watching while listening to this dazzling tune. Overall, Siren is a wonderfully colorful trip of sounds and stories, meant to be savored. That’s the short of it!
