The Rhubarb Triangle "Wakefield City Blues" Review

Reviewed by Nathan Ford

This young London based four-piece may not have quite decided on exactly who they are yet, but the three varied tracks on offer here suggest that whichever of the three paths presented that they follow will lead to interesting things.
The gritty, early Stones style boogie of "Bloodhound" is probably the winner in my book, combining primal vocal outbursts with infectious choogle and plenty of vintage analogue reverb, but they also show an aptitude for organ-heavy garage rock on "Wakefield City Blues" and explosive surf on "Hung Up (Baby On You)".
It'll be interesting to see if they develop a sound that integrates these elements a little more smoothly, but in the meantime this debut is a whole lot of fun.
