Review: Revel – Nineteen Hand Horse

Nineteen Hand Horse

Independent

Nineteen Hand Horse’s debut album draws influence from classic country but have a hint of the blues and a dash of rock amongst the 10-track record. Just Another Honky Tonk Night introduces us to Nathalie Archangel’s gritty vocals, the references to classic country artists such as Patsy Cline and Johnny and June Carter Cash are a good indication of where this band sits within the country music landscape. Having said that the melodies in the chorus feel somewhat familiar and, as crazy as it sounds, reminds me more of Abba! The Withering Romance of Trains is a song that’s sure to take you by surprise not least because of the language which is far from family friendly but also the differences in the production between the verses and chorus which brings in modern themes set to a classic instrumentation. It’s an intriguing record which certainly has a sense of humour! Though the group may be newly formed all of its members have worked in the music industry as platinum-selling songwriters, producers or instrumentalists and you can certainly tell as the record is riddled with clever lyrics, impressive guitar riffs and it’s pulled together with a phenomenal production. Nineteen Hand Horse are a modern outlaw outfit and they are certainly ones to watch.
