Rival Bones are a hugely hyped rock duo from Liverpool who recently released their self-titled EP.
The record brings out a more old school hard rock feel from the crunchy guitars to the hoarse vocals. Opening track Want You Madly is catchy and sets a precedent for the record. The opening of Marceline has a bit of a Kings Of Leon vibe, it’s more haunting than its predecessor. While Hives is a good song, it just seems to follow straight on from Marceline, if you weren’t paying attention, you would probably think it is just one long song. Closer Running is a good, strong end to the record.
The EP is a pretty strong one and matches the hype surrounding the duo.
