Exhibiting their sophomore record, dream pop sensation Gengahr storm by The Magnet as part of Liverpool Music Week, Getintothis’ Lucia Matusikova delved in.
The Magnet was already half-way full upon entering the venue and the opening act has not even started yet.
The crowd was waiting with the excitement for the Liverpudlian duo called Her’s. When they hit the with their first notes the audience is already swinging and dancing. Not only have they brought good music on board but also plenty of amusing jokes and cheerful energy. What is very unique about their sound is the playfulness, which sets the atmosphere of the night.
As it was nearing 9 PM, the Loved Ones got on the stage. This band from the Wirral is not a newbie on the scene.
They played a collection of songs from their two albums that fused together synths, piano and soft electric guitar. There was something in the air while they played and the audience was listening carefully and singing along to their songs.
The venue was full when Londoners called Gengahr, who supported Wolf Alice on their last year’s European tour, started their set.
From the first song it was mesmerising to see how they owned the crowd. Everybody was having good time and it was wonderful to see the chemistry within the band on the stage.
The main essence of their unique sound is the old-school solo guitar, and the catchy bass lines making everyone in the room dance and produce a mighty energy. After they finished the set, they were called back to play one more as the crowd did not want them to leave and it’s not often that this happens in venue of this type. If you’re yet to discover Gengahr, now’s the time!
