Tiny Moving Parts – 9th April 2018 – Think Tank Newcastle – Review and photos
By Gordon Armstrong (G’s Gig Shots)
Firstly, my apologies to bass guitarist Matthew Chevalier, as there are so few photos of him. However that’s because the gig was so well attended that I couldn’t get near his side of the stage for dancing and singing fans. So I guess no photos is probably the last thing on his mind in those circumstances!!
Tiny Moving Parts are a family affair with Matthew and brother William (drums) and cousin Dylan Mattheisen on guitar and lead vocals. They are described online as “emo revival ” but there’s much more to that in my opinion. There are catchy pop-punk sing-alongs, insane guitar runs that some math-rock bands would be proud of and more!
It’s hard to believe they’ve been together 10 years now they still look so young and fresh-faced (Dylan has to be the most smiling happy looking frontman I’ve seen in years) but their latest album Swell (Triple Crown Records ) is their 6th!!!
Like a lot of bands in this scene, their fans absolutely love them and there’s a great rapport between band and crowd from start to finish and the band head straight to the merch table after the last note has faded to hang out with them like long-standing mates!! I’m quite new to these guys having only caught them opening for Fall of Troy a little while back but they impressed me then and even more so tonight! Definitely gonna be hunting down that back catalogue.
