From the NYC scene comes Social Hero, a band whose impressive pedigree and familial ties (a set of brothers and a father-son tandem adorn this quintet) speaks volumes, as does the band’s sturdy hard rock concoction. Mixing the wares of ‘70s rock a la Led Zep with some grungy undertones, the four-song sampler showcases flashy yet rugged guitar work and rich, robust songwriting that takes your ears to uncharted territories. Keeping the vibe gritty on tracks like “Ice-9”, while still accessing their exploratory wares on the progressive rock-esque “Fly Home”, Social Hero exhibits the uncanny knack for anchoring a hard rock groove around the ability to reach further than your average rock band would even dream of going.
