Louder Than War give it up for Manchester singer songwriter Andy Whitaker, whose new group ‘Soup’ released a brilliant and critically acclaimed new LP titled ALBUM last summer.
A fusion of sounds, styles and moods, ALBUM plays like a carefully selected pick and mix made from the best of record collections, paired with some of Whitaker’s finest writing yet. Following his last group, The Chameleons spin off The Sun and the Moon, Andy now weighs in with a real modern day Manchester classic. Finding praise all round, ALBUM was chosen by The Manchester Review as their album of the year (their review is here.) The band touches base with a whole group of sounds and genres. To mention just some of the musical terrain in which Whitaker travels, it has Bowie inspired space rock elements (‘Spider in my Room’, ‘Shoe Gaze Song’) as well as the early dark groove of The Charlatans (Colour Coded) and the rhythmic chime of The Smiths (Hope for the Working Classes).
Treat yourself to a great night out with WINTERGEEN supporting. Soup also released a five track EP in December last year, which you can listen to on Youtube here…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6R1gzTDbh0
