Hardwicke Circus- Social Music EP

Hardwicke Circus is the name of a seven-piece from Carlisle who specialise in bringing some heavily melodic rhythm and blues music in a complete package that really packs a punch. Following their self-titled 2015 EP, the band have now returned with Social Music, another a five tracked EP acting as a brilliant taster to what this band are all about and how much they have to offer audiences.

Kicking things off is ‘Nowhere Left To Run’, a piano led intro that instantly bursts into a kaleidoscope of instruments: a bit of synth, trumpets, bass and guitar all intertwine for a few bars before vocalist Johnny Foster’s husked vocals kick in, carrying the track in a different direction than expected. The transition into the pre-chorus’ high “oohs” is fantastic and really shows a lot of range in Johnny’s voice. The track only continues to grow as each instrument proceeds to fade in and out of the ear and the occasional flourishes from the guitar really boost the song in such a way that it makes for an interesting listen throughout. The structure is somewhat abnormal is hitting the ear in an unusual, but delightful way before heading into a superbly played saxophone solo that simply comes out of nowhere. A great start and a great introduction to the band.
