Soulful, blues rock and roll band the Rainbreakers took to the stage on Saturday 2nd December at the Borderline in London supporting Canadian blues artist JW Jones.
A cool, casual atmosphere surrounds the Rainbreakers live due to their effortless playing and ability to nail it every time. Their sound is clean, clear and precise and the control each member has over their part in the band is something to aspire to. The relationships are strong between each member and that is clear when observing their interactions on stage with the nods they give to each other, it’s an indication to the crowd that they’re having a good time and as a crowd member you are too.
A mention was given to an upcoming album to be released in 2018, a chance for the band to showcase more of their talent and ideas to their growing fan base. The downside to their set was that they only had a forty minute slot which didn’t allow for much time to listen to their music. The tracks played in the time they had were well chosen with the selections allowing for variation in the set such as ‘Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On’ from ‘Blood Not Brass’, and their most recent EP ‘Rise Up’ with ‘On My Own’. A new, unreleased track was also performed to give something exciting for their current fans hungry for new material with the inclusion of ‘Lost With You’ which opens with a great bass line.
If you like blues or just enjoy live music then try and attend a show with the Rainbreakers if they are playing a town near you, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
