This is the self-titled debut album from The Seven Twenty, who play a lo-to-medium-fi kind of rock music. Could be relatively standard issue, but actually from the get-go this record feels immediately like a favourite obscurity from 1973 (in a good way). A quick 30 minute dash through 8 songs, as a debut should be. Black and white haze vinyl on Castles In Space.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 December 2015
There is no way that the black and white sleeve can prepare you for the colour of vinyl. It’s like an enormous black splodge on some off-white wax.   Initial listens to opener reveals the Seven Twenty operating at the acceptable edge of the unacceptable stuff, on opener ‘Corridors’ the grain in the voice recalls Liam Gallagher but the string drenched melody and plodding lo-fi production suggest something much more interesting like some lost ’90’s Creation act that were swallowed up in Brit-rock hell. I almost gave up on the record when I heard the boogie woogie of early Kings of Leon on ‘Haiku’ but ‘Wonderful’ seems to come from a different band altogether suggesting the Zombies gorgeous late ’60’s ballads or ‘Cups and Cakes’ era Spinal Tap.   Overleaf ‘FU, Ny’ recalls a Grant McLennan solo ballad and like the A side there are skippable tracks but the plaintive Shack like pop of ’Technicolour’ and The Trifffids-ish ‘Can’t Find Love In This City’ proves that despite me wanting to de-Liam-ize the singer, there is something here worth pursuing.
