This band was pointed out to my by the wonderful Humble Soul Records. Instantly they reminded me of Get Well Soon (Who, if you havn’t heard them, have a ruddy marvellous album by the name of Rest now, Weary head…). They possess a kind of post-Radiohead / Arcade Fire / demonic folk-rock epic energy that make me whack the volume right up, the hairs of my next stand on end and force me to lose myself and drown in an ocean of pure ‘whoa’.
Unsurprisingly, I get sent a lot of ‘Myspace bands’ by people, all claiming they’re the dog’s whatsits. Inevitably, of course, 90% of this stuff is pure crap. However, I trust Mr. Humble Soul’s judgement more than most and so was genuinely intrigued. And wow, was he right. What an absolute gem of a band. I’ve been listening to the few tracks they have online on repeat all evening, and can’t wait to hear more and see them live. You should do the same. Trust.
You can listen to songs by Revere here. Hard to choose a standalone best track, but to get a proper taste listen to The Escape Artist and Maybe In Time.
Revere play Mojo in Liverpool on April 5th and The Dulcimer in Manchester on April 7th. See you down the front.
