Like A Rocket / Press

“The tunes stick to your ears, and the lyrics are as clear and sharp as a broken bottle of Jack Daniel's on the pavement.”

“ Like A Rocket cites the Western Gothic ideal and Cormac McCarthy as indirect influences on its latest concept album, Welcome to Anhedonia. On the new record, singer Speedy Gray, bassist Z.V. House and drummer Max Klymenko weave tales of death, heartbreak and old Beelzebub himself. -Boise Weekly”

“Boise's Like a Rocket do the alt-country genre one better by ditching the often over-hyped Old West motif. The band has dubbed its sound "Southern rocking funk and alt-country." On "8th Ave Love Poem #1," lead singer/guitarist Speedy Gray croons about his love for a New York girl with a bluesy tone reminiscent of Mark Knopfler. It's the kind of song you want to learn all the lyrics to so you can belt it out while you hug the stage. A catchy drum line and guitar riff melt into an addictive tune as Gray sings, "Maybe what's wrong with me / is what's wrong with you?" The flute accompaniment on "Every Time Sweet" might catch you off guard, but you stay with the guys because they so perfectly fill their roles. The band is akin to The Animals in its early years, with a style that's somehow classic and modern all at once. ”
