The Equatorial Group – The Broadoak Sessions

 

All of you music supervisors working on your Independent film scores take note of The Equatorial Group.

Nothing impresses me more than a band that can actually play live in a studio environment, and these guys can play!

I hear all sorts of influences in their sound, the main ones that come straight to my mind are Pink Floyd, Fairport Convention, Gary Jules and even a bit of Chris Rea in places. For all you guitar heads out there, check 6.43 for a very tasteful slide solo by guitarist Dave Davies (Red SG, medicine bottle slide – I think we have a Derek Trucks fan!).

Lead singer Helen Weeks has a superbly unique, rich and distinctive voice which adds to the bands ethereal haunting feel.

I’ll be keeping my special eye on these guys!
