The Family Rain: Carnival
The Family Rain. Get to know these guys, and do it fast.
Since stumbling upon their unknown video to now - receiving attention from Zane Lowe on Radio 1, these guys are gaining speed.
Brothers Ollie, William and Timothy hail from Bath, England.
Their sound is heavy on the guitar riffs, soulful vocally and powerful on the blues rock influences; overall their sound is heavy, loud and distorted. They are arguably one of my favorite bands at the moment and each released track gets better and better.
They are wrapping up their album at a legendary studio in Berlin, and their album will be released sometime this year.
