NEW MUSIC: The Rigs – World On Fire (Album)

My gateway to The Rigs was the track “The Hunted”. Otherwise, to be very honest, I might not have listened past the first track “The Brave”, which points rather to big stadium glam rock complete with a big synth bridge. But with the beautifully haunting melody of “The Hunted” in my head, I was intrigued.

Still, musical diversity is the key for The Rigs’ debut album “World On Fire” and that makes it such a delightful listen: rock, pop and electronic are thrown together with different recipes and in the end there is even a pull-out-your-lighter (or cellphone) moment in “When We Were Young”, which features additional vocals by DeAnte Tyree Duckett.
