New Year Ninety 2018 – 60 to 51

Again the The New Year Ninety Chart as selected by the readers’ of the site contains musicians from every continent, barring one, Antarctica, from where no band has ever featured, though something I still aim to rectify at some point in time – from  60 to 51.

Rival Island – Don’t Mind Molly – Video

Rival Island is an alt-indie duo from the USA.

Rival Island

With material ranging from frayed rock to indie dance Rival Island in which ever guise they choose to deliver their music it has a transnational  and cross-genre appeal with compositions that hold attention.

With only one album behind them Look To The Sun (which is available on bandcamp) they appropriately elected to showcase their spread of music in the approximately 25 minute six track LP (also available as a ten track just under forty minute version).

From either version the fifth track – Don’t Mind Molly – finds them creating a number that contains many of their influences as it evolves through bluesy-rock, indie-dance and shoegaze.
