I always love it when I hear a band for the first time and I am just instantly hooked. Then I find they have been around for several years. I feel like I have been missing out but I am sure glad that I found them now. For me that band tonight is The Rare. I think I found them when they followed us on Instagram. I know a lot of people think we don’t pay attention but we do. We always try to do our best to check out our Twitter and Instagram followers.
So then, I headed over to their website and heard their song samples and I love the straight up rock and roll they deliver. From there I headed over to their Youtube channel and watched their video for a new song, Vegas Valentine which is off their new album In “The Dark” and was just released November 12th! This song is infectious and you can’t help but get drawn in to their energetic vibe, even dipping into a bit of old school punk rock anthem style. Today with all the labels of genre, sub-genre, post-sub genre categories, (yikes!) it is refreshing to see a band just do what they love and put out great rock n roll, not trying to fit into a particular slot. They are unique in their sound and I am really digging them. Check out their video for Vegas Valentine here:
So who is The Rare? It is Nicho Searls on vocals and guitar, Myke Akers on bass, Zach Daniel on guitar and Alex Dean on drums.
Another song I checked out of theirs was Break Velvet that completely shows a different side of this band. It has some deep dark overtones which just grab a hold of you and take you on a journey. I am addicted to this song! It has a Stone Sour feel to it. It is some damn fine work! Well, I am going to head over and check out the full album and we will bring you a more comprehensive review next week. You really have to check it out, they are just like their namesake, a rare gem in this musical world.
Make sure to head over to their social media sites and check out The Rare. You can pick up their album,”In The Dark” right now on Itunes.
