Righteous Reprobates- ‘My Psychosis’

RR-Shoot-Still-ImageIf you are going to release a debut rock single then opening with a classic rock style intro is definitely the way to go and that is exactly what you get with four piece London/Kent band Righteous Reprobates new release ‘My Psychosis’. An abundance of guitar, a gradual build up of drums and then bang!

Rob White’s vocal has a regional twang not far removed from the style of Damon Albarn and this is extremely effective in emphasising the lyrics themselves, something vastly important when they are so profound as there is nothing more off putting than a song that makes no sense at all or from which you cannot decipher the lyrics. Opening with the line “fly me away as I fall through the sky” immediately sets the scene for the mental descent reflected in the song.

Booming bass, thunderous tub thumping and a face melting guitar solo thrown in for good measure and *voila* you have ticked all the boxes, dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s. The single is due for release on 7th December 2015, to be followed soon after by the album release and tour dates. I for one will be keeping an eye out for these dates as I am curious to find how well this translates to live performance but I am pretty sure these young chaps won’t disappoint.

About the author

Music plays a major part in every aspect of Louisa's life, always has done and many a memory has been created or triggered through it. A mum of 5 on the wrong side of 40 she loves gigging as much now as she did in the 80’s. Louisa's main passion is rock and metal but she's quite at home with a bit of good old 80’s pop and likes to think she is open minded about new stuff too. If she's not listening to music, she's thinking about it or writing about it. It’s a good life!
