Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
The world might be in turmoil at the moment but, despite the naysayers, music has not only been helping us through but has seen a resurgence into our lives the like of which hasn’t been seen in many a year.
Not only are people digging out old, much loved, albums but there’s a whole raft of fantastic new talent coming through and standing loud and proud amongst them are Portsmouth’s Brave Rival.
The south coast blues rockers are following in the footsteps of giants such as Fleetwood Mac and this tasty slice of good time swing brings elements of the megastars vocal harmonies along with a big, dirty groove.
With the soulful twin vocals of Lindsey Bonnick and Chloe Josephine bringing luscious layers and a scorching solo by guitarist Ed Clarke raising the temperature even more, this is an instantly addictive thumper that will have you singing the chorus for the rest of the day and on into the next week.
A ridiculously good opening salvo, ‘Guilty Love’ will bring a little sunshine into your life, make you dance and party like it’s Friday night every single day of the week.
With their debut album ‘Life’s Machine’ due in May, there’s still time to grab yourself a place in the know before these guys go stellar. Grab a drink of your choice, clear the room of any breakables and just let yourself go and get lost in the music.
