Rips Are Right Up My Alley
I hadn’t heard of Rips prior to yesterday, but apparently they’re the next big thing out of the Brooklyn scene. This time around, I’ll buy a ticket for they hype train as they’re clearly doing something that’s right in my wheelhouse. It’s a little bit nostalgic, a little bit power-pop…and everything good. Despite this tune’s look towards old school NYC vibes, the dreamier quality of the guitar styling is perhaps what sticks out the most, providing a very modern notch of flair that has me excited to hear what comes next. They’ll be releasing their debut self-titled LP on June 16th…and looks to be a hit in my book.
