REVIEW: Submotion Orchestra

September 4th, 2010 by

Sunday afternoon at Chai Wallah’s was chilled with a lo-buzz of conversation and the occasional ribbon of smoke appearing from various groups scattered under the long, stretching marquee. Many would have been content with leaving it at that – but then Submotion Orchestra took to the stage.

A warm smile from vocalist Ruby drew us in as the beats began to roll. The speakers blasted out the ever-present brooding bass lines with the subtle layered touch of chimes and symbols. Like the weekend’s weather, the audience were presented with sunshine bursts of trumpet and heavy dubstep downpours.

As the afternoon progressed people took to their feet. However, it seemed just as appropriate to sit and focus on the voice of the lone girl facing us. With strong lows and soft highs, her voice blended perfectly with the music.

The group were clearly enjoying themselves, spontaneously laughing and probably thinking: “how good is this?”
Whatever their thoughts, we enjoyed ourselves. Shambala greatness – whatever the weather.

The People’s Front Room was fantastic entertainment but prone to powercuts fortunately the pianist pulled out an acoustic guitar. He followed this tune with three Monty Python songs, including The Bright Side Of Life.
