Hailing from Saxony, Germany, Razz are a four piece band that opened for Glass Caves on their recent ‘I Do’ tour.
I usually go into a concert having listened to stuff from the openeing acts, but I didn’t this time and was completely blown away. Superb doesn’t begin to describe how good these guys were. So much energy and soul to their performance. Tracks like Paralysed draw instant comparisons to Franz Ferdinand. Mostly they channel the spirit of post punk bands from the Late Seventies/Early Eighties like Simple Minds and Bauhaus.
Stand out tracks from the night were Paralysed, Let it In Let it Out, Another Heart Another Mind, Youth & Enjoyment and Black Feathers.
Not sure if and when they will tour the UK again – I certainly hope they do – but definitely a band I want to see again.
Brudenell Social Club, Leeds. October 2017.
And if you like that, they have a couple of albums available – well worth a listen to.
