Living Body – Body is Working

Friday 09th, December 2016 / 18:00
By Liam Prost

Kingfisher Bluez

With its influence in all the right places, Body is Working, the debut album from Leeds, UK-based, self-described “Post-Brexitcore” band Living Body, is a rich studio release with deliberately paced movements and instrumentation. Studio is the key phrase here, because the record feels a little bit like a rock opera. While cinematic, very little of it conjures images of a live performance. With post-rock linearity, there are expansive swells and dynamic low moments, but it also contains some achingly raw vocalizations from both male and female singers with some clearly pointed lyricism.

Hyper-articulate and quintessentially modern British guitar work reels in the corners, flutters and clean hooks are everywhere with the horns, keys, and understated rhythms playing second fiddle, occasionally there is a literal fiddle or two as well, as in standout track “I Recollect.” Production elements also fill the gaps, but adds a layer of digitality that roots this record in its studio feeling.

Body is Working is more than a proof of concept, it’s an exercise in masterful guitar work, smart songwriting, and clever arrangement. That it left us wanting more might be more of a compliment to Living Body than it seems.
