Rock has had a major problem lately. The genre has been dying because of the total lack of originality with new bands trying to break into the medium. You listen to a hard rock station these days, and every new band sounds exactly the same.
Same song structure, same lead singer, same everything. It’s the worst.
But Marnie Bennett turned me onto Rival Sons, which has totally restored my faith in new music. They bring a classic rock style that feels totally new and unique.
My only hope is that these guys, who hail from Long Beach, manage to break into the main stream. But considering the above video has been up since March, and they still only have 6,000+ views, rock might still be in for a struggle to remain a relevant medium.
