Republic Of Lights – Go Rococo
Well-crafted retro rock/pop
Fantastic album from Chicago-based band Republic Of Lights. A great sounding band, think Spoon meets The Strokes, with a healthy dash of spring reverb. Their sound may not be 100% developed yet (it’s damn close), but the lyrics are creative, the hooks get in your head, and I expect nothing but greatness from this band in the future. I got to hang with these guys at a show I played with Black Canvas this year, and they are very cool, and have a great live performance. Support them by downloading the record and telling your friends.
