Montreal QC band The Rising Few have claimed to increase their game and have a bigger sound on their new EP Adult Entertainment, the followup to the Alt-Rockers 2014 EP Sinners On St-Laurent.
The band have been described as being a culturally diverse group with members coming from; Haiti, France, Syria, Canada, Brazil, Armenia and Egypt coming together in Canada with a love of Bruce Springsteen and a knack of storytelling within their music.
Delusional behaviour is what describes the EP’s lyrical content with Big Boy Games describing treason, The Sinking Of The I’m Alone describing the sinking of the Canadian schooner the “I’m Alone” during the prohibition era, Try Try Again depicts the delusion of failure and Lights And Shadows tackles melancholy in love-loss. The Rising Few might be a new band but with the statement that is driven from all of the above songs, their certainly a group to keep an eye on.
The main songwriter for the band Karim Terouz said: “It was GO BIG or GO HOME! We’re all recent immigrants to Canada and in a time where cultural differences are threatened, THE RISING FEW take the chance to promote their unity, by tackling these issues and presenting them in classy, colorful, adult contemporary rock.
Adult Entertainment is set for release this coming Friday and will be available on iTunes and Spotify.
