Ok so I cant believe that I missed this one! Well thanks to , Kyle Vallis and his awesome Unsigned Melodies web site, which showcases unsigned independent bands from around the UK (and rest of the world) I get a second chance to hear these guys.
Rank Berry are a UK (Scotish to be precise), classic hard rock band. Rank Berry, as Kyle very eloquently puts it, sound like "Black Crowes and Creedence Clearwater Revival partying with Guns and Roses and the Wildhearts. Classic rock with an authentic attitude...", and to be honest that's the most fitting description that I can think of.
Classic Rock is running through the veins of each of the three songs here, just imagine a present day equivalent to the Black Crowes, Dogs D'Amour and Bad Company.
The songs are beautifully written, and performed to perfection, with just enough of a raw edge as to stop them feeling forced. These guys obviously love what they do, and they do it very, very well!
the only fault with this EP is that it only contains three songs, damn I can't wait for the album!
Together with the likes of Cage The Gods, Rank Berry are leading the UK Classic Rock revival!
Very Highly Recommended
