Introducing Rawshank, from London and Cambridge
This is another one of those bands that have introduced themselves to me via this blog. If you are in a band trying to get noticed you need to put yourself about a bit.
Blogs like this welcome comments from genuine musicians and music lovers. It makes such a pleasant change from all the spam comments. So if you comment on this post about your band, and add a link to your website or social media page, I WILL approve the comment. The least you will get is another link back which can only help your Google rankings. If I like your stuff I will write a post about it.
I get the impression that Rawshank haven’t been together for very long. There is very sparse information about them on their Facebook page and only a smattering of “likes” at the moment. I’m sure that will change.
Their style is quite refreshing and innocent. It sort of puts me in mind of the Manchester/Liverpool indie scene of the 80s and 90s, as in the whole Inspiral Carpets, Boo Radleys, Lightning Seeds, Seahorses, Shed 7 sort of thing, but then with a look back towards the sixties with lots of “baa baa ba-da-da-da” kind of backing vocals. Mind you, having a re-listen to some of those bands I just mentioned they aren’t short of a few lah lah lah’s in the background either.
As you can tell from this video they like to have a bit of fun.
You can check out their first two tracks on their Soundcloud page
I’m not going to write at great length about them right now as I expect they will come up again at some point, and in truth, I haven’t found out very much information about them.
More details on the Facebook page, a website, etc, all would be useful to get the message out there. Press and media types love to have ready made copy that they can just drop into an article. I prefer lots of facts that I can rework into my own style, but either way, an update is needed lads.
