The Floozies combine both aggressive electronic music with smooth guitar licks and funky drums to create an incredibly entertaining live experience. On September 19th, the Floozies played a set at the Sinclair, a club located on Church Street in Cambridge, and impressed even the harshest of music critics in the crowd.
I’ve been playing music for the better part of 17 years, primarily jazz and classical piano. I’ve enjoyed listening to music my entire life, but could never get into EDM. My biggest complaint about EDM was the lack of traditional instruments, as I was raised on acoustic instruments. Going into the Floozies show, I didn’t know too much about the band, and was surprised to see a guitar and a drum set set-up on stage. The two brothers played their instruments throughout the entire show, with both instrumentalists taking time to improvise and solo over the accompanying electronic tracks.
It was this improvisation that made the show so enjoyable for me. I always read stories of EDM acts who don’t do anything on stage, simply letting a prerecorded track play through their entire set. In order to extend the time of a solo, Matt Hill, the guitarist and producer, would have to extend and loop the tracks. The result was songs that sounded almost as if they were being played by a jam band, with uncertain lengths and parts. The band was significantly more enjoyable than the more standard producer who played before them, who sat behind his turntable the entire set. With an assortment of covers such as a remix to the classic “Space Jam” theme which they used to close out their set. The result was a truly enjoyable live music experience, and a great introduction to two up and coming talented artists.
