Stealing Sheep’s lyrical chatter set to video game-like beats and jangly, starry synths draws you in, and then leaves you stunned, wondering how anybody managed to read your thoughts back to you with such accuracy.
An out of body experience you can dance to.
Big Wows, the Liverpool three piece’s third album, conjures up the faraway exhilaration of new-relationship longing, the exhaustion of crap boyfriends and the danger and frustration of knowing another woman’s mind. All this complexity – and much of it all too familiar – is lifted dreamily by setting it to an electro pop score. To listen to it feels kind of like having an out of body experience you can dance to.
The band returns to their hometown this December for a three-night run at the Kazimier Stockroom. The venue itself is a Millennial’s Narnia (in the best possible way) and for this reason it is especially well-suited to stage the kind of music that feels like pulling up a chair in your own mind. A product of the team behind the gritty and luminous Invisible Wind Factory, the Seel Street venue will be a welcome refuge when the streets of central Liverpool are packed, roaring and glowing at peak Christmas shopping time.
Liverpool will be Stealing Sheep’s triumphant final call on their extensive nationwide tour, and it is a safe assumption that the trio’s tryptic of homecoming performances will be something special.
