With The Rupees latest single “Terror Lover”, you have no time to hesitate in deciding whether the hook will snare you, straight from the prelude the sonic attack will take hold and lure you into the atmospherically raw single.
It comes as no surprise that the Bristol-based fourpiece have already been tearing up stages with the likes of bands such as Blossoms. With a soundscape as textured and anthemic as theirs, they can tear wholes out of the atmosphere. For any fans of the Klaxons, Kasabian and Arcade Fire – The Rupees are definitely a band that needs to be on your radar sooner rather than later. Their radio-ready sound hasn’t failed to be noticed by BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 and Sky TV. Expect to hear a lot more from them in 2019.
