Perth pop outfit Rinehearts have released their debut album Can’t Do Nothing and it’s a jangly, up-tempo and fun-loving time.
Forming in 2016, the trio are made up of longtime friends, guitarist and vocalist Ben Ward, bass player Mitch Long, and drummer Ross Di Blasio. Releasing tune after tune with poignant and relatable lyrics, driving drums and catchy guitar melodies, the band has well and truly found their niche sound.
Perth trio Rinehearts have released their debut album Can’t Do Nothing, and it’s catchy, relatable and fun loving as ever.
The album consists of 11 tracks all recorded in Di Blasio’s living room, creating a cohesive and well-rounded sound that extends throughout. With similarities to other contemporary Australian bands such as Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and The Creases, the band’s songs are catchy with a chill feel.
The title track Can’t Do Nothing features great storytelling expressed through meaningful lyricism and complimenting instrumentation. Other tracks such as Broken from the Start with driving electric guitars and Act Your Age are fun to listen to and would be great for a boogie at one of their live gigs.
These are still relatively early days for Rinehearts, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to the new album above.
