Biography

Lockdown Project, or LDP as they sometimes refer to themselves, show in this self-titled album that they are masters of fusion and masters of their instruments. The sound is built around Spanish guitar and perky pop rhythms, but with vocals swerving between ska, nu-metal and pure melody. Think La Isla Bonita meets The Specials, with a pinch of Linkin Park thrown in for good measure.

And somehow, it really works. Every song could be a dance floor filler, with hip-swaying, toe-tapping beats, and most have catchy chorus hooks to sink into a radio listener’s psyche. The foursome from Bath have a cohesive style and attitude which melds the components into a seamless whole, making a fresh new sound, the quality of which does not falter throughout the 12 tracks of the album.

The band are tight and crisp, with guitar, drums and bass seemingly inextricably linked into a single unit. Songs are a perfect pop length, and drip an atmosphere of sunny summer holidays, although the swearing on some is likely to dent their chances of making the Radio 1 playlist.

To their basic sound the lads add depth by layering an entire string section onto I Don’t Want To Lose You and I Wish, and by liberal seasoning with shouts and whoops (there appears to be an entire Mexican village’s street party in the introduction to Can You Feel It) and percussion (surely that wasn’t maracas in This Girl?).

    One of the best bands I've ever heard. Too sad that they broke up.
