Soho Ghetto 

Humble Beginnings Make for Good Night Life (Independent)


Longer than an EP, shorter than most albums, Soho Ghetto’s collection marks the arrival of a distinct, fluid new seven-piece. Matthew Gibbon’s crisp harmonica and Shawn Burke’s double-pump drumming are as much a signature as Marc-Antoine Robertson’s plaintive vocals.Then, on “Heart, Beat, Skip,” Rachel Sunter’s piano drenches in colour a youthful fret about missed opportunities at the crossroads of love: “It could be a beat you can’t afford to miss.” The Halifax band can dazzle in the manner of Newfoundland’s Hey Rosetta! with how fine ensemble playing can scorch their songs into your brain when the chemistry is right.
