- Off & On by Findlay
1 review. Write a review for us »
Findlay is a young lady from Manchester playing lively rock’n’roll with full-throated vocals and big glammy riffs. Lead track ‘Off & On’ is a subtlety-free radio rock romp which sounds like Florence & the Machine playing a long-lost T-Rex song, and the other song on side A, ‘Fever’, sounds similar, but minus the T-Rex bit.
Turn it over and there’s two different songs. ‘Angels Or Machines’ is a brooding bass-led one with some pleasingly jarring guitar lines. I’m still not crazy about the loud vocal showboating but recent chart figures tell me that lots of people are actually into that stuff so who am I to judge? Closer ‘Infinite’ is a tolerable but insubstantial piano ballad in thrall to the late Lady Winehouse but sounding like a very depressed Cerys Matthews. There’s a lot of comparisons flying around to The Kills and the like, but really I’m thinking more Florence-meets-Pink. It’s polished stuff and if she plays her cards right she could be the next Duffy.
