Moving the songs from the bedroom to the stage, their creative synergy is tangible. A mutual appreciation for the charisma and melody of classic British artists such as David Bowie, Echo and the Bunnymen, and J.A.M.C.; as well as the nostalgia of classic Americana informs songwriting that is beyond their years. Gusti’s earnest lyricism wrapped in a reverby haze of guitars, worms its way into your heart.
Now, with school finished or put aside, Gusti and Robbie are prepared to release their debut album ‘Brief Spirit’. The record, self-produced over a handful of long nights, is filled with the strong melody and kaleidoscopic arrangements fans expect live. What listeners may not expect is a hint of the magical kinship so wonderfully realized in their live performance, and makes Keeps a truly special band.
