ESTRONS, Shrinking Violets & Guests
A Killer Wave show
Hotly tipped for 2016, Estrons join us from the land of our fathers, Meaning
‘Aliens’ in Welsh, the four-piece met in a chance encounter on the beaches of Aberystwyth and soon formed a band with the premise of being general misfits and outcasts that never quite belonged to any one country or nationality. Fronted by Canadian-Swede Taliesyn Kallström, with Rhodri Daniel (guitar) , James Keeley (bass) and Hugh Parry (drums), ESTRONS bring together punchy melodies, powerful vocals and loud guitars to create an in-your-face indie rock sound, underpinned by garage rock sensibilities. Lead track ‘ Make a Man ’ is a raucous affair, the guitars and drums are loud and brash, overlaid with intense vocals, reminiscent of tracks by
The Subways and Wolf Alice and old school Be Your Own Pet.
– “ Estrons vocalist Taliesyn Källström explains of her band’s new song, “Make A Man”. Quite the statement indeed, but
Estrons more than match it with ferocious musical energy. As Källström yells “I’d like to make a man out of you”, vicious guitars are heard throttling against hammering drums that
constantly threaten to break. Somehow, despite the raucous riffing and relentless yells, “Make A Man” is a solid, accessible block of sound – so much so that national radio has gone a bit mad for it. We’re not at all surprised.”
– The Line Of Best Fit
Shrinking Violets are the five-piece result of an experiment to blend rock and roll with soul and psychedelic pop
