SONS OF REVELRY-BORN WITH A BIGGA GOAL

I am not certain what has come out of Brantford, Ontario other than Wayne Gretzky and Phil Hartman, but Sons Of Revelry may just be their greatest export since the Great One himself. Their recently released debut EP, “Born With A Bigga Goal” is getting the band exposure beyond their local fan base.

SOR2Born With A Bigga Goal“, has an incredibly powerful riff that avoids being overbearing. The steady rhythm section contrasts the screaming guitars. The song transforms itself in the last 30 seconds into an in your face anthem. “Time” is a great pop song.  The powerful vocal  and the great melody line make this the album’ s single.  It is danceable, singable and enjoyable. It is simply played yet complex in its construction and arrangement. A very cool song with nice harmonies and a Beatlesque ending.  The bluesy feel to “Whiskey” allows us to hear Toby’s vocals at their best while choppy guitar chords are played under very stylish picking’  This song has a much slower tempo and I kept waiting for it to burst open. When it does,  just after the first chorus, it explodes into a much rockier song. It has a 1967, San Francisco music scene, guitar thing going on. There are UK sensibilities here as well, and you can hear just how much fun these guys are really having. My pick as best song on the EP.

These guys are young. Thee guys are enthusiastic and energetic. They are grateful to be able to make music and have people listen. There is no attitude, no ego and I find it  refreshing. This is how music is supposed to be;  all about the music, and the music speaks for itself. The only issue I have with Born With A Bigga Goal is that there are not more tracks on it. This band writes good songs and makes them sound great. And they have a whole lot of fun doing it.

To see Sons Of Revelry, they will be playing at Two Doors Down in Brantford on July 13, 2013.
