Throwing blues, garage rock, and punk into a flaws and all slab of raw rock ‘n’ roll, UK duo The Boy From The Crowd make an intriguing and ultimately gripping entrance with debut single Revelator. The single actually embraces more flavours than mentioned in the last sentence, but takes that core into a wild and compelling riot of noise and attitude.
Consisting of vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Vinny Piana and drummer Vegas Ivy, The Boy From The Crowd on the evidence of Revelator, is not a band concerned with offering polished enticements but one driven by the rugged essence of dirt encrusted rock ‘n’ roll and the antagonistic tenacity of punk rock. Yet there is a vein of enterprise within the song revealing a definite thought bred resourcefulness to their sonic brawl which only adds to the success of the track.
A lone guitar teases ears initially from within a raw and dusty sonic haze before the track erupts with thumping beats and a heavy bass coaxing bound in a sizzling wash of blues drenched guitar temptation. It is a raucous blaze of noise and intent but one with a rein to its assault which increases its potency and potential. Vocally Piana provides a delivery which ebbs and flows in success depending on which aspect you look at, but at the same time brings captivating character to the growing anthemic nature and appeal of the song.
With fire to the pleasing guitar enterprise and the rhythmic incitement of Ivy pounding emotions into keen submission, the track is an intriguing and wholly satisfying introduction to The Boy From The Crowd. Its raw charm wins over the imagination right away and with only the lack of the intimidating snarl it often hints at a niggle, Revelator is strong entrance from the band’s and potent teaser for their upcoming album.
