Electricity Club Review Silicon Dreams

Electricity Club have done an amazing review on Silicon Dreams,

To quote their comments about me..

Caroline McLavy kicked off proceedings with tracks culled from her impressive debut album Electrostatic, giving the event a slick start.

As discussed in TEC’s review of the album, McLavy’s material is “…peppered with synth hooks, emotive melodies and simply good danceable rhythms”. The likes of ‘You Know’ are given much more of an impact on stage, courtesy of McLavy’s confident stage presence and equally strong vocals. Elsewhere, the bassy tones of ‘I’ll Take My Chances’ and bangers such as ‘Miss Perfect’ and ‘Constant Pain’ show a solid collection of songs in her arsenal.

Meanwhile, the tropical rhythms of ‘Where Did I Go Wrong’ take things down a gear. Finishing things up is the deceptively slow intro to ‘Calm Before The Storm’, which erupts into a percussive belter at the halfway point, ending McLavy’s set on a high note.

In The Electricity Club’s interview with Caroline McLavy earlier in the year, she summed up the advantages of taking her songs to the stage: “Often electronic music has a human disconnect by its nature that playing live can put back into the music. It puts blood into the veins of the songs”.”

SILICON DREAMS 2017 Review

 

Silicon Dreams – Liverpool – July 8th 2017

Oh my, what an amazing event!

This was the first time I had the opportunity to play a purely synth festival. I had such a great time, the other acts were all very supportive of each other and the audience was lovely.

Here are some wonderful pictures taken by John King

It was great being on a stage that just had keyboards and synth wall to wall
