First of all, I am absolutely made up that this track has got a release as a standalone single. There are so many different facets to this band and I think that this track helps show off just how diverse their sound can be when you compare this tune to previous singles.
The Rooz as a band first came to my attention last October when I reviewed the Fairweather EP. I reviewed some pretty amazing records last year but that EP was one of the very best, I thought it had everything.
Out On A Limb is the band’s new single and the latest to be taken from that EP that I rave about above. The track is rockier than everything else of the EP but the band still shine. A big, sweeping chorus is the standout moment and takes centre stage. The vocal is completely on point, the guitar work enjoyable and rolling drums which launch the song towards its finale are a great touch.
If you’re reading this and you’re new to the band but like what you hear I’d definitely recommend laying your hands on that EP. This is only a fraction of what they are capable of.
I’ve also seen whispers on that beautiful thing that we call the internet that the band will be announcing a run of live shows through the summer, so I’ll bring you the latest on that when I have it.
