Life Model - Lucky EP
Today is Life Model's lucky day. Or, more precisely, their Lucky day, because their new EP with that title has been released. The band has been known for their dreamgaze (dreampop + shoegaze), but this record finds them muscling up with a touch more rocking, and it is a sound they do very well. Opener "Skin and Bones" rumbles and threatens like something seeping out of the Seattle underground in the early '90s. Title track "Lucky" brings the melody in a noise pop charmer. The lovely "4ever" and "Together" hint at and build upon the band's dreampop roots. Take it for a spin below -- if you are looking for good, new music, this may be your lucky day as well.
Life Model is Sophie Evans, Chris Smith, Joanne McCafferty, and Michael McDonald and they are based in Glasgow. Lucky is out now in cassette and digital formats via Frux Tapes.
