American 5-piece Rubblebucket are in the midst of a month long European tour and offer fans an incredibly attractive and colourful catalogue. In fact, they’ve just appeared at Glastonbury festival, and it’s no surprise that they’re making a splash on this side of the pond when you consider their latest single ‘Sound of Erasing’ is an understated indie-rock gem.
With a front woman who has a Katy Perry-esque voice but without the auto tune and annoyance, the song is immediately upbeat and insatiable but maintains an element of subtlety that is at risk of becoming lost in amongst all the instruments. Just the right level of delicacy is apparent to ensure this indie beauty isn’t overdone and the balance between softness and pure hard indie rock is spot on.
‘Sound of Erasing’ is Rubblebucket’s kaleidoscopic entanglement of indie rock and electronic and their future is as bright as this single appears. With a 40,000 strong Facebook following, its likely they’ll continue on in leaps and bounds.
‘Sound of Erasing’ is available to download for free on rubblebucket.com and their latest album ‘Survival Sounds’ is released on August 26 on Communion Records.
