Fateful encounters in bars from Cleveland who mocked heard of the legendary Spinal Tap as Odes Provinzkaff capital of Ohio, is rarely suitable for musical Legend education, but the story SomeKindaWonderful have to tell, is probably the most notorious exception that proves the rule. It begins, as a singer Jordy Towers withdraws after a ruptured record deal from Los Angeles to the Midwest to lick his wounds.
"Most people go to LA because there hope for a brilliant career, but I had the city until leaving to find my way. When I signed with this big label, I thought now would be all my dreams come true" remembers Towers on his supposed jackpot that too should prove rivets soon. "We shot a video in which I had to dance around in a silly red suit as Justin Timberlake. I would have liked to killed ... honestly. this had nothing to do with me. "
In January 2013, Towers met in a bar in Olmsted Falls, a tiny suburb of Cleveland, the drummer Ben Schigel and guitarist Matt Gibson. "The two were doing just such a thing as semi-public rehearsal, and if I am not mistaken, they were pretty drunk," laughs Towers. "They played this tune that grabbed me immediately, so I walked over to them, and sang simply part I remember that we then merely looked us stunned and I said. '. We should take immediately'" As it turned out belongs Schigel one of the best studios across Ohio. Less than four hours later, the number in the box and the trio had SomeKindaWonderful lifted from the baptism. "This first song that started it all was, 'Reverse', The single, which was to be our breakthrough. Sounds like thought, but the truth. "
Although "Reverse"Unquestionably had a lot of luck in the game, it would be a shameless understatement, this first single from the self-titled debut album of SomeKindaWonderful be described as pure luck. Mercilessly catchy, "Reverse" with its echoes of the Soul of the 60s, to contemporary RB, the dynamics of large-format Poprock Designs and its almost cinematic emotionality sounds so modern and classic at the same time as it actually do only those songs that even have lost years after their publication nothing of its allure. Jordy Towers sings in a narrative cadence, the Rap and Soul merges together, from the consequences of infidelity. He followed the events that led to this Amour Fou led up to its beginnings back -. And, as already indicates in the title, in the reverse order "The idea to tell the songs going backwards on a track of my favorite rapper Nas and up Michel Gondry Movie 'Forget Me Not' back. In a way, the song also reflects my move from LA to Cleveland: Because my path also ran in the opposite direction than you normally would expect, "said Towers.
The epic ballad "Amaretto"Content quasi the prequel of" reverse ", concedes this exciting genre balancing act that characterizes the whole album, this time dominated by a Phil Spector-torque with reverberated drums, Looming strings and the dramatic vibrato a meandering Twang- guitar very large auftrumpft and the appropriate framework for a vocal performance returns, showing to what gänsehaut-creating excellence Jordy Towers versatile voice capable.
In the rousing uptempo number "Honeymoon"linking SomeKindaWonderful then Sugarpop infected Motown Soul with New Wave bonds in the form of jagged guitars, distorted bass, cool synth sounds and a driving offbeat rhythm to the most danceable catchy tunes of the album.
And OhrwÜrmen prevails in this sensational debut God knows no lack. As inter alia "policy"Impressively demonstrated, carried by powerful sub-bass and extremely heavy beats turning to contemporary RB, in which not only make the sirens tidy alarm. A rogue the way, who thinks he recognizes a tribute to KRS-One in the chorus this monster tracks, lies but one of the many roots of the band unquestionably in hiphop.

That SomeKindaWonderful In fact, the miracle succeeds with this song, to transform a cover in a completely new piece of music without going to its knees before the original - and we are talking about 2Pac and Dr. Dre - Speaks to the maturity and class of this band whose career with the step of a small bar in Ohio as one of the most promising Newcomer of the Year 2014 has only just begun.
