“A clean sound and an enthusiastic approach that gives their second album 'The Language of Curiosity' an immediate appeal!” - Hugh Fielder - ★★★★★★★
Retro rockers who are offering a fresh twist.
A husband- and wife-led group who divide their time between the UK and Europe, the Starlite Campbell Band have a fresh take on 60s and 70s British R&B, a clean sound and an enthusiastic approach that gives their second album, The Language Of Curiosity, an immediate appeal.
The songs are all original – although there are hints of Brown Sugar on Gaslight, and a more direct nod to You Really Got Me on Said So, but the atmospheric guitar solo later on owes absolutely nothing to the Kinks. There are also shades of Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac on slow-burning ballad It Ain’t Right.
Their songs are well constructed, following the format of their favourite era, and they know the importance of a good hook. In contrast to their retro musical style their lyrics have an engaging, contemporary flavour with subjects ranging from lying politicians to refugees via casual sex.
