There’s a kind of off-kilter funk vibe to their sound, possibly bringing to mind a more idiosyncratic version of the Chilli Peppers, that comes across in all four tracks on offer here. But probably best exemplified in Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, which also winds the funk clock back to the ’70s and possibly even further, before rocking out towards the end. In fact this raw rock sensibility is also present in all four tracks, alongside the funkiness, and complementing it beautifully. Single Hamburgers exposes this juxtaposition to best effect.
To sum up, if you dig alternative funk-rock, this is your bag. And these boys go absolutely off in a live setting as well. Hopefully a release of more than a few tracks is not far away from these guys.
