We have a lot of love for Hartlepool based Leopard Rays, we even premiered one of their songs last year. But now they have really found themselves on a higher plane and their new single ‘Brother’ is a shining example of the band’s maturity and brilliance. Coming from their debut EP ‘Times A Factor, Kid’, Leopard Rays quite simply deliver.
‘Brother’ is a blast of moody alt rock, pumped full of aggression but not so far removed from their melodic roots. Verses feel pensive but the choruses explode with huge sounds and bigger riffs. You have to stop and admire the way the songs ducks and dives in volume and intensity whilst retaining all of the songwriting prowess that Leopard Rays have demonstrated time and time again.
