Inbox Wednesday: The RGBs
Ever since the inception of this feature I've been giddy with excitement at the prospect of rummaging through the BTA mailbag to discover what musical treasures have been sent through our door. And the experience has easily lived up to the fervent expectation. There have been some real contenders this week, including the latest anti-folk gem from Jay Jay Pistolet, who the London contingent of BTA have been stalking for the majority of the year. But there was one real standout that exploded from the mailbag to snatch the trophy.
The RGBs showcase a collection of fully formed, infectious, electro disco pop tunes, with extra bass to ensure total submission from the dancefloor. "The Day" is my current favourite, with its pulsing electro beats, frenetic synths and compulsive vocals, inspiring spasmodic grooving / flailing in this correspondent's living room. As their debut promo "The Everlaster" below illustrates they also provide some impressive visual stimulus which never hurts...
Their debut album is due to be released in early 2009. Having already played a bunch of the major UK festivals and due to support CSS in the coming months, expect them to emerge as one of the early highlights of next year.
