Unearthed Review continues its inexorable progress through the Canberra musicians on the TripleJ Unearthed website.
By popular request the Eagle’s Nest is reverberating to the beat of Scaramouche.
They have this to say about themselves:
Scaramouche are a hard-working five-piece band from Canberra/Melbourne who have crafted a raw, fresh and dynamic approach to rock that incorporates traces of sludge, blues and psychedelia.
Scaramouche have been gigging tirelessly for the last year and have supported national acts such as the Scare, the Hell City Glamours, Los Capitanes, Ink and Light Noise as well as headlining local music festival Indiefest. They have also undertaken various charity gigs, raising nearly $4000 for Bangladeshi school children and Haiti earthquake victims. The Scaramouche live show is an exhilarating whirlwind of sweat-drenching energy charged with groove-laden drums, wailing guitar showdowns, crunching bass and hair-raising vocals.
Scaramouche headed to Brisbane in February to record their first EP, scheduled for release later in the year. The new tracks showcase an exciting, balanced and timeless sound that has already lauded much promising feedback.
A lot of people wanted me to review these guys so expectations were high.
They are at heart, a big sweaty rock band with some metal licks thrown in for good measure.
The music is tight despite its inherent chaos.
If you like big old school rock/metal then you are really going to dig these guys.
