“SPEED OF SOUND” is the debut single from RAGS AND RICHES; an American Alt Rock fourpiece who don’t fail to bring out the raucous side of Pop.
While Adam Levine may have tried his best to give Pop a Rock edge, clearly RAGS AND RICHES are a band blessed with the ability to create perfectly polished buzz saw riffs with raw vocals.
Combining vocal harmony with a complete lack of restraint was an ingenious move from RAGS AND RICHES who are sure to be of appeal to fans of bands such as the Black Keys. While all of the instruments sat in a tight arrangement in the debut, it was the deep reverberant throbs of the basslines which really took SPEED OF SOUND to the next level.
If this is what they’ve cooked up with their debut track, I can’t wait to hear what else they have in the pipelines.
