Club Classic - Single Review: Richie Whiskey

24 Sep 2020 // A review by Isla Norman
Club Classic are an energetic indie-funk band from Wellington looking to make their mark on the Aotearoa music scene by making people dance. Inspired by legends Parcels, Sticky Fingers and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the four piece specialise in dynamic and groovy jams.

Richie Whiskey is an energetic funk-rock track about 'that guy' causing trouble at a house party. The track features a powerful vocal performance from the lead singer as he describes Richie Whiskey’s antics. The use of chorus vocals yelling "giving it up and giving it up" evoke the feeling of a house party that’s going off. The moments of crossover between rap and funk make the track a lot of fun.

The rhythm section is groovy, utilising still, high chords layered on drums and funky bass to build an energetic soundscape. Richie Whiskey would be a lot of fun to listen to at a house party. It maintains its energy relentlessly, demanding that the audience stand up and move. The transition into a heavier drop half way through keeps the sound diverse, and a distorted guitar solo builds the anticipation for the final chorus.

Richie Whiskey is sure to be a riot of a live track, and lucky for us Club Classic are jumping on stage at Meow, Wellington alongside Pass The Peas and Androgynous Lemon on the 15th of October.

Imperial April - EP Review: An April Christmas
03 Dec 2020 // by Isla Norman

Samantha Heart - Single Review: Alaska

After years of "scribbling lyrics and humming melodies", Samantha Heart is ready to "call herself a musician". She's taken on this new identity with the goal of staying honest, especially when it's difficult.
