“The guitars are raw and more aggressive, the bass more driven and brooding, violin more sweeping and majestic and the drums more anthemic. The band have managed to take their sound and push it outwards in all directions. It is bigger, deeper, and more energetic and has better separation of component sounds, leaving enough room for front man Jason’s smooth, slightly whiskey- cracked, voice to really stand out.”
“The world needs more distortion guitar mixed with more conventional string instruments, it also needs more interesting rock music! Today we bring you a mixture of both of these desires shuffled together with some oldie style rock and roll.”
“You get more of the same grunge-laced heavy rock, with trademark razorblade-throated vocals and violin stabs, but with songs that are more considered, lyrically stronger and with more melody to them within the guitar riffs and in particular the violin parts.”
"It left this old Grunge Monkey nostalgic for the early 90’s, and excited at what is to come from this band as we are promised new material soon."
“Often these days a band need a special something to stand out for the crowd, and with SBR it has to be doing alternative rock with a violin.”
