THE ELWINS ! Canadian Pop Thrills in Europe…

Artist: The Elwins
Home: Keswick, Ontario – Canada
Members: clockwise from top right: Frankie Figliomeni (bass and fresh vocalist), Feurd (guitar, keyboards and yes, just… Feurd) Travis Stokl (drums), and frontman Matthew Sweeney (vocals, guitar)
Sounds: sparkling guitar pop fuelled with titanic choruses – here comes the summer…
Works: 2013 debut album ‘And I Thank You’ and brand new follow-up LP ‘Play For Keeps’…
My impressions: abundant guitar pop quartet – mightily crafted songsmiths – new album ‘Play For Keeps’ is one long, sunny ride of energized power pop tunes – the band played my hometown Ghent (Belgium) last Monday as part of an extensive cruise around Europe –

– their pumped up enthusiasm is instantly contagious and they sure know the tricks to get everybody involved in their steamy set – as an encore we even get an euphoric Elwins version of Beyonce’s groovy ‘Countdown’ – after the gig I only saw faces with big smiles – the score was obvious: knock-out victory for the thrilling pop team in the front…
Highlights on ‘Play For Keeps’: Bubble / Show Me How To Move / So Down Low / You Have Me / Away Too Long…
