Introducing…Rare Grooves

Rare Grooves have emerged from the ashes of  The Widow Babies and are a duo consisting of Tabor Allen on drums and Danny Miller on guitar.

They got in touch with their self-titled debut 7″, which came out recently and we’ve been thoroughly enjoying it. The band name made us (wrongly) think we were going to hear a throwback to a northern Soul band, but the truth of the matter is that it is much harder to describe than that.

The best we can do is a hybrid of anthemic chanting, finger-picked twang, and sometimes experimental sounding guitar all held together with a well crafted and unusual rhythm. It all adds to something rather wonderful and rather intriguing.

As first releases go, we’re more than impressed. One to keep an eye on definitely.
