Dany Laj and The Looks - Word On The Street. NEW ALBUM

Montreal based Dany Laj and The Looks have released a new album that will have you salivating at every track. “Word On The Street” has its feet firmly rooted in Power Pop but has no qualms about drifting off in tangents towards rock and roll, country, surf, even a bit of Clash styled Reggae. That is not to say that this album is all over the place, it isn’t, it is perfectly crafted and comes together beautifully.
Track One, “Small Town Kid” is a classic Power Pop affair, written about songwriter Dany growing up in a small town in Northern Canada. in my experience, living in Sweden, some of the best musicians here come from small towns where there is little to do and after finding music and deciding to play music, they become incredibly good musicians and songsmiths, and that, is certainly true in the case of Dany Laj. All the songs on this album are well crafted, energetic and filled with more hooks than an Ikea warehouse, melodies that will draw you in and engage you into singing along, long before you are even slightly familiar with the lyrics. Dany Laj is ably backed by Jeanette Dowling on the bass and backing vocals and Lewis Handford on Drums, a better rhythm section you couldn’t ask for This album is made up of ten tracks that are all killer with no fillers among them and will certainly be topping the end of year lists by radio stations and bloggers alike.
