Gammarays is a brand new band from Ghent, founded exactly half a year ago. These youngsters have only played one or two gigs so far, and it’s hard to find any of their songs online.
Luckily we can hear two tunes on YouTube, and “Willowisp” is a real winner. Electronic and down to earth, poppy and mysterious, beats and beatless (no, not Beatles), there’s plenty of variation, enough to make these 4.32 minutes look and sound like a normal 3 minutes radio tune.
Add Clio Arys’ wonderful voice and you get the perfect song for almost any season and any setting. If it’s hard to write a few good songs, it’s even more difficult to write plenty. Gammarays may be one of Belgium’s top acts for the future, though.
