It is hard to believe a band that played their first gig only a few short months ago could come out with an album so quick, but they did, and it rocks.
From the get go, Make Your Move pulled me in. Opening up with an infectious drum beat, leading into the swaggering Dead End Bitch I could not keep my feet still. Every track had me bouncing in my seat from the energetic stomp of Devil Radio to the slower, haunting Forbidden. This is not sit on your ass, toe tapping music, this is rock and roll meant for moving. Wrecking, swing dancing, whatever, it compels you to keep moving from start to finish.
Reckless Ones do not follow traditional formula of classic rockabilly, nor today’s “play as fast as you can” school of psychobilly. They play something closer to the neo-rockabilly that emerged in the 70’s-80’s revival, without cliché content that was typically represented in the lyrics of the period. No pink Cadillac’s, no zombies, no songs about their hair just rock and roll. 8 songs, all originals, not a loser in the bunch.
With a debut album this good, great things are sure to follow. I for one am really really excited.
Favorite: Forbidden. It is the slow one yes, but it sticks in my head and Kris and I like to dance to it at the shows
Least Favorite: Reckless Ones. Not a big fan of theme songs, still a good song, just not my favorite.
