So that intro could be Latin Playboys. The first verse is clearly Rusted Root; but the sensibility is Modest Mouse. And something about the writing, the easy falsetto, the clean electric and the boomy kit, reminds me of Paulo Nutini. It's a pile of references and some orgasmic production, but what makes it worth listening to is not the deep production budget. It's the voice of the narrator. It's a messy catharsis and a good time, some tough love and some hard truth.
Rainbow Kitten Surprise release "Hide", the third track off their label debut “HOW TO: FRIEND, LOVE, FREEFALL,” which arrives everywhere Friday, April 6th. Tour dates are on the website; roughly speaking, east coast in April, west coast in May.
