JW Paris have just released their fourth single “Electric Candle Light” it is a supreme slab of dirty, scuzzy, fuzzed-up garage rock. There are influences here as diverse as Dr. Feelgood, Suede, early Libertines, Babyshambles, and even Ian Dury and the Blockheads. (I only learned after typing that previous comment that drummer Gemma Clarke played with Babyshambles from 2003 to 2005!) Aaron Forde bass and vocals) cites even more influences in his statement “We have drawn influence from all our favourite artists including Blur, Suede, Jack White, FOALS, Joy Division and Rolling Stones” Gemma (Drums) said of the track, “it has a mixture of dirty guitars and any analogue synth we could get our hands-on in the studio“. Danny Collins (vocals and guitar) said that “’Electric Candle Light’ is a futuristic-analogue-nostalgia fuelled track all about those nights where you seem to fall into a time-lapse and wish for those past better days” Lyrically it is pretty sharp, nostalgic, and quite funny, how can you not feel the passion and history in a line like “make a copy onto a floppy and allow me to drive” I challenge music fans to listen to this and not instantly love it as much as I do!
