The First Loves – ‘Realise’/’Sweet Cliche’

There is something a bit special about The First Loves that make them stand out amongst a crowd of post-punk worshippers.  Grungy, reverberting guitars and pulsating rhythms are punctuated with art-rock sensibilities.  The general ambience of their sound is that of an imposing austerity, this is indeed dark music, the kind that hits your heart with a heavy thud and emplores you to listen. Nevertheless, there is an inherant excitement within these tracks, that evokes a feeling simultaneously of defiance and unity. 

There is definately a trend emanating from the heart of London that is calling for a revival in the punk sensibilities and sounds of 80’s Britain and The First Loves may just find their place within this rising tide.
