Right from the opening All The Way Up, which somehow combines spaghetti-western soundtrack music, indie, blues, pop and gospel, you can tell that Welshly Arms are something special.
The Cleveland-based sextet have had their music featured in TV promos and movie trailers and are supporting Thirty Seconds To Mars this summer, so it’s a given that they are radio-friendly.
From the breezy, clap-along Indestructible to the shimmering beats of All For Us, the glorious and uplifting Sanctuary and the R&B-style grooves of Locked, Welshly Arms sound like mega-mainstream chart-toppers.
They’ve got the huge choruses, and also oodles of innovation, and the gospel elements give them a particular edge.
Similarly to the Black Keys, Welshly Arms’ rousing, radio-friendly pop-rock has the potential to blow up.
