Background

Hot on the heels from last year’s ‘Threesome Volume 1 EP’, the ex Jellyfish guys going under the The Lickerish Quartet moniker have duly released Volume 2, once more doing what they do best, with a wonderful slice of sunny happiness for these dark times.

The Songs

The opener ‘Do You Feel Better? ‘has an air of understated grandiosity about it, with the strings being a deft touch. This is a summery, warm tune and as the title asks, it most certainly does! and that goes for the other three tracks as well.

‘Sovereignty Blues’ lies somewhere in between the easy listening sounds of The Beach Boys and the 70’s vibes of the likes of ELO, something The Lickerish Quartet does with ease, and to make it just that little bit better it’s got harmonies stacked up higher than your average Queen song.

‘The Dream That Took Me Over’, moves on a decade or two and is overtly 80’s/90’s pop, its drenched in synths and reminds me of French duo Air on occasion with its floating, dreamy ambience to it.

‘Snollygoster Goon’ brings it all to an end.. far too soon for me though, and this is very different from what has gone before, with its crunchy pop rock approach and an attitude that’s really carefree, and had me drawing comparisons with the Power Pop Kings The Raspberries.

In Summary

A record that’s guaranteed to bring a smile to one’s face. This is top quality Pop/Rock, with some wonderful melodies and snappy intelligent lyrics. Can’t wait for Volume 3 to drop. A great start to 2021, thank you to The Lickerish Quartet.. long may it continue.
