Rival Sons is a California rock quartet whose earnest rock ‘n roll interpretations garnish a genuine swagger that shines through their vintage hard rock sound as heard on their eponymous six-track EP. Channeling classic rock majesty from The Who to Led Zeppelin, this squad’s beefy bottom end and bluesy six-string sting work in tandem to take rock ‘n roll back to analog times. Chock full of soulful hard rock licks, ballsy percussion, and rumbling bass grooves (“Radio”) and topped off with a lead singer whose wailing vocals are delivered with an exuberant conviction (“Soul”), Rival Sons does retro right and renders a treat to the ears for any self respecting rock fan.
