"Riveting and resilient, The Language of Curiosity needs no translation." | Lee Zimmerman - Goldmine
A British outfit of some renown, Starlite Campbell Band — specifically, Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell — specialize in a straight-forward sound permeated by sturdy rhythms and spry melodies that ring and resonate every step of the way. With their new album, The Language of Curiosity, the focus falls on rich and memorable melodies, songs that make an emphatic impression even on an initial encounter. The title track is an ideal case in point, a riveting rocker that’s as insistent as it is emphatic. “Bad Sign,” the song that follows, is decidedly pointed as well, thanks to a compelling chorus that drives its point home. So too, “Take the Time To Grow Old” is flush with decided deliberation. “Said So” is a rocker worthy of the early Kinks. Ultimately then, the duo can be credited with a delivering an album that ought to bring them the attention they so decidedly deserve. Riveting and resilient, The Language of Curiosity needs no translation.
