The storm is coming...
Every so often a band
arrives that encapsulates a collective feeling or a sense of
occasion. These bands stand out from the crowd, seemingly one step
ahead of the rest.
Over the past six
months, a band of three individuals has been causing quite a stir on
the streets of Manchester with only a handful of gigs to their name.
Demo tapes, MP3's and the whispered buzz of expectant insiders has
begun to elevate this threesome onto the lips of music lovers
throughout the North.
The Cyclones have
Maybe it's the
thunderous shows, the dynamic boy/girl combination or their unique
style and look, but The Cyclones have set themselves apart. Huge
guitar riffs, soaring vocals and energetic live shows ensure that
this band are the real deal.
The Cyclones songs
and sound has evolved from the proud guitar rock tradition, however
the band have pushed and forced an evolution in this seemingly tired
style. Comparisons to the great power pop bands have begun to
emanate, and yet The Cyclones still manage to avoid the well-worn
clichés of their predecessors and have forced even the most ardent
sceptics to concede that there is something special happening.
The trio have
successfully distilled the energy of punk, the power of rock and the
addictive hooks of pop into a style all their own. Perhaps the
unique melting pot of their Australian heritage has influenced their
instincts to blend equal parts American Rock and British Pop into
their own music.
This is year zero,
and the storm is here.
