RIC have today (10 April) shared two new tracks, ‘Silence Stays’ and ‘He Loves To See It’ and you can hear them both exclusively on Gigwise. 

Get out yer bucket hat and poke yer head out the window with a Dark Fruits tinny to get that (quarantined) festi vibe. Or, level up and pitch a tent in your house. Then, stick this release on a speaker in the corner of your room to remind you of hearing noise from a nearby tent floating over on the gentle summer breeze, whilst perched on a slightly broken camping chair from Wilko. Ahhh. 

Taking inspiration from the heavy chunk of Queens Of The Stone Age, the raw, full-throttle guitar work of Slaves and the early ramshackle indie of Arctic Monkeys, emerges RIC. Sounding even more comfortable and assured than their previous releases, this West London quartet really prove the progression of a band in the early throes of their recording career. We love to see it. Listen to the songs below:

This indie-leaning punk double A side is set to incite many a festival singalong, and with hooks aplenty it’s a solid statement of intent from the emerging band. The first track ‘Silence Says’ comprises ferocious riffs with the pace of early AM and some tasty delay, while ‘He Loves To See It’, with its tight grasp on the British vernacular sees them demanding your attention. Full throttle, not even making it to the 1:50 mark, it’s that whirlwind soundtrack to moshing with your mates, emerging drenched in sweat and rushing with endorphins. Nice.
