Watch List: The Rooks' 'Intermission' (Wires) Is One You Will Be Happy To Stay For
Having had the pleasure of hosting The Rooks several times last year at our New York showcases, we are by now suitably well versed in the instinctive appeal of their sophisticated and effortlessly engaging r&b/indie-soul stylings, with the band most recently getting our crowd grooving away at our CMJ showcase last October. Led by the ear-catching appeal of singer Garth Taylor's smooth vocal tone, the band can turn its hand with equal facility to either soulfully infused, reflectively introspective balladry, or they can funk things up to get a crowd on their feet, a winning formula that has seen them build their reputation along the East Coast as a band on the rise. Currently with a January residency at Arelene's Grocery, The Rooks have just released the groovy shimmer and soaring vocal motif of the echoed memories and missed connection that is 'Intermission' (Wires).
