YYNOT Rocked The Mint And Satisfied My Prog Rock Fix Rush Fans Have A New Band To Look Towards For Rocking New Music
LOS ANGELES, CA- Fans of the progressive rock genre are a devoted breed. Despite the genre getting little regard from “critics” and receiving little commercial radio-play, it’s absolutely adored by millions, and their fans will go out of their way to preach its virtues. Do you have any friends that love Rush? You can’t tell me that they haven’t pulled an “I Love You, Man” moment to lure you into the “holy triumvirate’s” sonics.
But what’s a prog-rock fan to do when their torch bearer is no longer active? With Rush calling it quits (for now) in 2018, where can they turn to for new music to satisfy their cravings for intricate instrumental arrangements laced with heavy riffs and dancing bass lines? Look no further, here’s YYNOT:
I got to catch this band perform live the The Mint, and I can confidently say that if you are looking for a little something to quell your Rush fix, you can easily satisfy that craving by catching this band in action.
Their grizzly bassist Tim Starace knows how to “slap da bass” and his liveliness on stage seemed to energize the band. As their drummer, Joel Stevenett, beat out intricate rhythms, their guitarist, Billy Alexander, shred away on his corner of the stage. I was impressed with the pint-sized vocalist, Rocky Kuner. Her voice is no frills, clear and pristine, with just enough attitude when the music calls for it, which completely compliments the frenetic instrumentation that swirls around her.
This band has only been around for a couple years, but based on what I saw when they performed live, and how their self-titled debut album sounds, I’m willing to bet that they’ll be pulling in fans left and right, and will be sticking around for a while. I suggest you jump on the band wagon now.
