Switzerland's We Loyal made their US debut earlier this week with a show at Trash Bar and the band is currently in the middle of a series of five local shows.
The final two shows are Thursday, Feb. 10th at Fontans and Tuesday, Feb. 15th at Cameo Gallery. At Thursday's show, We Loyal are playing with Beneficial Tomatoes and Secret Country and cover is $7.
For the show next Tuesday at Cameo Gallery, We Loyal are playing with Chica Vas, Nihiti and Hard Nips.
We Loyal was founded mid 2008 and the band is made up of Ben Kuster (Bass, Synths, Vocals), Sandro Simon (Vocals, Guitar, Synths) and Fabian Trümpy (Drums, Synths, Vocals). Last year, the band released their debut EP “Obstacles” which was produced by David Berger (Balloons a.o / Liverpool) and Manuel Bürkli (Mañana / Basel). All the songs are influenced by various settings and places of origin, playfully combining analog synthesizers with striving beats and dark vocals. Bands such as TV on the Radio, Joy Division and Foals leave their traces in this play of light and shadow.
The EP reaches open ears and hearts – it gets critically acclaimed by blogs and radios all over Switzerland and Germany and in the following months We Loyal will play over 30 Clubshows and Openairs with bands such as Foals, Wolf Parade, Rain Machine, Wild Beasts, These New Puritans a.o. and release remixes for several swiss artists, which again are reviewed with enthusiasm.Links:
“As we got in touch with the DIY scene in Liverpool we started to realise, that interesting music starts in your head, through your commitment, experimenting in a critical way and your decision to go your way”, says Sandro Simon. And with these words We Loyal take their fate into their own hands, from recording and mixing to artwork and merchandise.
