/Artists/Old Mrs. Bates
In their new single "Cold Place" the young Austrians "Old Mrs. Bates" initially flirt with the Beatles and you think to yourself, "Hey cool, rad 60s sound!" But then it happens. The drums start and you get such a beating that you have to hold on to something. And that's good. While you lull yourself into swaying security in the polyphonic lo-fi piano intro, the guys from Vienna are already preparing their attack on the calm little smiling. And then their true DNA comes out. Guitar rock - that could have been made in England - á la Pigeon Detectives, Arctic Monkeys and early Oasis. Also the Northmen of Mando Diao can be recognized in the DNA of Old Mrs. Bates. Also true here: That's a good thing.
In times of pop and often accompanying shallow lyrics and overly smooth productions, one often forgets as a musician and as a listener what is actually really important: Feeling. Authenticity. Fun!
And you can be sure that the guys from Old Mrs. Bates have a lot of fun when they play their music through the amps. How must the fans feel at a live concert? Well, thanks to Covid & Co. we will probably only find out in 2022. Until then, we must, no may, be satisfied with their new single "Cold Place" - released on 10.12.2021. In the spring of 2022 it will be even more exciting: Then follows the matching EP - more about that soon!
