Fusing contagious rhythms with catchy lyrics and infectious melodies, The Ravens are a rock’n’roll band for 2013. Whilst their debut track (‘Let Sleeping Dogs Lie’ – below) may have been online not even two weeks, it’s garnered them no small amount of well-deserved attention.
Whilst the rock and roll revival has been known to take a few criticisms, this a band that make simple, honest-to-God, good music. Taking the classic rockabilly vibe and mixing it with a contemporary edge, they write songs that feel both fresh and comfortingly familiar. With more recordings set to follow, as well as some live shows, The Ravens are a group you should really be watching out for.
You can catch The Ravens opening for T A S T E (formerly The Artois) at The Sunflower Lounge this Friday June 14.
