Rare Americans describe themselves as a pair of Canadian Priestner brothers who’d never written a song together until a year ago when they met a crazy Slovakian guitar virtuoso named Lubo. As a relatively new band from British Columbia, this pop rock group are emerging with a few songs (three to be exact), some official videos (three again), and this is a review of their latest single, ‘Balmoral Hotel’.
The track is about feeling alone; it sounds like it’s about a breakup; and while the band cite Bad Religion and Ozzy as inspiration, it sounds a lot like Twenty One Pilots. The music is very good, and the vocals are amazing. The guitar solo at 2:44 is particularly great.
‘Balmoral Hotel’ is a very good song and highly enjoyable. If you have been through a breakup or ever felt alone, it’s a very relatable song. ‘Balmoral Hotel’ is available to stream on Spotify, SoundCloud, iTunes and Bandcamp. The music video is also available on YouTube.
