Scott Lloyd: Give Me Something

Give Me Something
Scott Lloyd
Today sees the release of the new EP from Scott Lloyd, whose previous EP, The Northern Gate, was featured here at Marsh Towers earlier this year.

At six tracks, it's actually somewhere between the worlds of EPs and full albums.

Track List

God I Say
Give Me Something
What Have I Got To Do
Picture In My Mind
Make That Mistake
Is This What You Dreamed Of

God I Say starts things off in a fashion tinged with anger, questioning of God the machinations of the modern world, which leave us feeling ''like a cog on a wheel.'' Give Me Something is a more gentle-sounding reaction to life and the desire for something better and the theme is continued on What Have I Got Do, albeit in a much livelier style.

Stylistically, the most obvious influence is Bob Dylan, especially when the harmonica kicks in alongside the acoustic guitar. Picture In My Mind is a good example the influence shining through. Make That Mistake is a much more upbeat and straightforward love song and Is This What You Dreamed Of brings things to a conclusion with a thoughtful ballad of regret.

The launch evening takes place tonight at The Eagle Inn, Salford. Why not pop along if you happen to be in the area?
