LIVE! – Threesome

ARTIST: Threesome
SUPPORT: Basti Fantasti
VENUE, TOWN: Pacific Parc, Amsterdam
DATE: 14 June 2012
RATING: 5/5


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Get up and dance, man. 


MAIN REVIEW: Threesome is a surf rock trio hailing from Belgrade in Serbia. An amazing live band who play with gusto, their style is a mixed bag of 60s style surf pop, minimal psychedelic rock and new wave – together it works brilliantly.

Threesome formed in the beginning of 2010 and beat 400 other bands at Belgrade’s Battle of the Bands. Currently on an extensive European tour throughout the month of June, they sadly won’t be blessing the shores of Britain. However Amsterdam’s Pacific Parc is a total rock’n’roll haunt with the locals getting properly involved. There’s a dance-off afterwards that transforms into a bizarre dance/fight between a glam rocker and a self-styled ‘hipster’!

Despite playing to a half-full venue, the minimal crowd grabs the opportunity to pogo and dance until their hearts’ content. Tracks like ‘Chasing the Car Bandits’, ‘GTO Crash’, ‘Wahine’ and the delectable ‘Snow Surf’ see the crowd pull out Pulp Fiction style moves on the floor, all mash potato and surfing bird, albeit in a frenzy. Their songs are of the ilk of short stabby numbers in two minutes, enough to get the heart beating so fast you nearly pass out, have a two second break in between songs and then get some more of a beating. Fine work.

Guitarist Uroš Milkić has an odd way of playing the guitar, he seems to throw it around, looking a bit like a conductor throwing his weight around. But it worked. Drummer Jovana Petrović hammers at the cymbals and snare so hard she snaps her sticks, whilst bassist Petar Živić has the effortless cool of bassists the world over, hardly daring to move.

Dancing doesn’t really get much more fun than these 60s moves and Threesome has got instrumental surf rock down to a fine art. The fact that they come from a land-locked country like Serbia makes it all the more appealing. Their songs maybe sound similar and are of a genre that is easy to copy but when you are having that much fun it doesn’t matter.
