Family Rain- Band of the Week

9th December 2012

What to do when you visit Bath, visit the Roman Baths perhaps? Look around the Jane Austen Centre? The last thing I imagine you’d think to do is to see a Band who’d be more suited swigging Whiskey down in Nashville. But Bath is the home town to Family Rain the brilliant three piece bursting with potential.

Consisting of three brothers (hence the name Family Rain), this may ring the family band bell of Kings of Leon, but think more along the tone of pretend Brother sister combo White Stripes and you’re closer to their sound. They might be hip-hop inspired, but the guitar riff on current hit “Trust Me…I’m a genius” is very much dripping with Bluesy goodness.

Speaking of the new track “Trust Me…I’m a genius” may be the most apt name for their breakthrough single. Genius in the fact they managed to get signed, by having their song posted on blogs and getting attention from Label. Trusting them as if this is what they can do early on wait until they release more material!

For fans of: Jack White (any of his many bands), Black Keys
