It sometimes feels like rock music is stagnant. Like hip-hop and electronic and pop are all evolving and rock isn’t. Like maybe bands just ran out of ways to make guitar-driven music exciting. Then something like this comes along. London’s Hidden Charms delivers bluesy, full-bodied rock on “Love You Cause You’re There.” It’s rooted in the traditional, but the raw energy cuts through for an electrifying effect. As long as young bands are making music like this, rock will be just fine.
“Love You Cause You’re There” will be available in the US on November 20, and you can pre-order it on iTunes.
