Straight Jacket Legends – ‘Sofia’


Songs, as David goes on (and on and on!) about here at home, are all about melody, harmony and rhythm. Good songs, even more so. Straight Jacket Legends, a great rocking quartet out of Wales, may be calling themselves “orchestral power punk,” but it really comes down to the fact that they create memorable melodies and harmonies, brought home by a steady pounding rhythm section. Take the song “Sofia” from their new EP, Lemon Party:

From the haunting piano line of the introduction to the gorgeous descant harmony vocals of the song’s finale, you find yourself singing along during your first listen, like the song is a old friend that you’re happy to hear from again. After hearing the songs on Lemon Party, I can’t wait to hear a full album’s worth of material!

About Lily

Lily (short for "Diamond Lily" on account of her nose) considers the day she met Charley T. Cat in foster care to be a huge turning point in her life. Bonding with Charley led to the two of them being adopted by a pair of music teachers / writers in Egremont, Massachusetts. She loves music and hopes to be able to bring some of her latest favorites to the attention to the readers of Guitar Noise.
