Figurines: Five Songs Recorded Live At Vega, Copenhagen (Album Review)

There’s nothing like the joy felt in realizing an artist sounds just as good live as they do on a studio album. Such is the case for Danish band Figurines. Still in the wake of their 2010 self-titled release, the guys are back with a fully charged live recording of a recent show at Vega, Copenhagen.

A specific, dynamic, and energetic performance it’s obvious the band believes in their music, a confidence that makes the five live recordings a nice supplement to the band’s previous albums. With sultry vocals, punk-rock infused lyrics, and irresistible chord progression reminiscent of both the British Invasion and Second Wave music movements, this live album is bright company for dreary days.

I can’t help but think it to be a necessity for any and all late night dance parties. “The Wonder” and “New Colors” are particularly awesome though really all tracks are brilliant. Grab it off bandcamp and be sure to check out Figurines’ previous albums as well.
