A night of goblins and ghouls with Balconies

Submitted by on November 5, 2011 – 10:59 pmNo Comment

Martyr’s Devin Size ventured to the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto Oct. 29 to celebrate Halloween with the dynamic trio of The Balconies, in action on the band’s latest tour following the release of the Kill Count EP.

Long story short, they failed to disappoint – even in zombie attire.

Without altering the content much, they exploded this night, live with energy and charisma that stemmed from a bond the band shares on a personal level – being the trio is comprised of the Neville brother and sister combo of Jacquie and Stephen, completed by drummer Liam Jaeger, Jacquie’s counterpart.

The Balconies are liable to blow your mind live.

Jacquie’s eccentric guitar was matched at the Horseshoe by her screamingly passionate vocals, kept together by Stephen’s narrative bass lines and Liam’s hypnotizing beats and rhythms.

They’re nothing short of electric on stage. And, according to the band, the next album is going to reflect their live enigmatic energy.

“We weren’t happy with the sound on the first album,” said Jaeger on this night. “So we’re really perfecting our sound as a whole, to give a full impression of what we can deliver.”
