Shock of Pleasure Readies Debut, Entertains Area Elite
Kelly Christian can sing, we think.
Although local electro lounge band Shock of Pleasure’s new album doesn’t hit the streets until mid-September, folks can get a (pricey) taste of the band tomorrow night when it performs at The Mansion on Turtle Creek. The band will be playing the bar of the ultra-expensive hotel, though, so one will only have to exorbitantly overpay for drinks to see them.
Shock of Pleasure has been around since 2004, but has only released a couple of singles (one of those, “This is a Test,” received quite a bit of hoopla last year). The debut full length, appropriately titled It’s About Time, features a couple of interesting cover choices: The Carpenters’ “Superstar,” and “Spooky,” which was a hit in 1969 for The Classics IV. The originals aren’t too shabby either, despite the super-slick production that seems to be inherent is the dance/lounge genre.
Vocalist (and hottie) Kelley Christian is the obvious focal point, but the gal does have quite a set of pipes, too. Should cause a few members of the local Bourgeoisie to cast glances in the band’s direction. --Darryl Smyers
