The rock trio The Low Spark from Nicosia will be celebrating the launch of their new album A Few But Many tomorrow at Savino Live in Larnaca, for the enjoyment of all you rock fans.
The album, which has been in the works for a year now, is the band’s debut and contains eight original compositions. A Few But Many is a fine example of the band’s sound. Its waves of progressive-psychedelic rock teem with soul and blues rhythms, while also echoing the band’s influences from the music scene of the 70s.
Their lyrics deal with subjects like society gone wrong, spirituality, the unconscious and letting go of our demons. Married with fresh and guitar driven soundscapes, the album, helped along by the live performance, will have the audience taking it home and listening to it for days.
The band, who are Lefteris Moumtzis on vocals and bass, Louis Pafitis on guitar and Stephanos Meletiou on drums, came together in 2009. Even before they got together, the musicians were already playing a big part on the local music scene, but once they became a unit their place in recreating the scene became apparent.
Originally the boys were a cover band, but they slowly moved away from making hits out of hits and started to compose their own material.
As the band’s Facebook page suggests, they are the leading alt-psych-rock band on the island. This may be true, but what is also certain is that their energy on stage is contagious.
