PREVIEW: Errors @ Green Door Store, 31/03/15

Glasgow three-piece Errors share a record label with fellow Scots Mogwai, who also run their Rock Action record label, but that really is where the similarities end. The musical style of Errors is a very synth heavy electro sound that feels like it has been made to get people dancing. They are currently touring to promote the release of their fifth album Lease Of Life, which is out towards the end of March. They will be playing at Brighton’s Green Door Store, a great little intimate venue that will suit them perfectly.

Lease Of Life is also the title of a song on the album and has a pulsating rhythm that is like a 21st Century version of Kraftwerk’s Autobahn with elements of early Depeche Mode for good measure. Slow Rotor also from the new album has that Hot Chip infectious pop quality to it that hooks you straight in. Older singles such as Pleasure Palaces from their previous album has all the components from iconic early electro bands such as New Order and has an almost euphoric quality to it. These songs should really come alive when played in front of people, as when I have seen Errors in the past they seem to feed off the energy in the crowd and really look like they are having fun up on stage. My challenge to anyone attending the gig is to remain motionless as I don’t believe that it will be possible!
