Rabid Young - EP 1

.
You hear a lot of different musical influences coming through EP 1 by Rabid Young. A lot of these influences take on the form of passionate 80s musical voices. One big one is U2, although this act is more techno leaning and pop-y. Another act that comes to mind is San Francisco's Wire Train. This is rock music grabs you in with its hooks, and keeps you right there with raging sincerity.

It's not surprising to learn this act has opened for The Killers in the past. Both act's share similar influences. During "Beautiful Things" they sing these wonderful lines "Beautiful things never ask for attention/Beautiful things never wait for you to notice them." Over a shimmering keyboard lines, these words best exemplify the bands philosophical smarts.

Nostalgia for an earlier era can be pathetic. However, when you draw from what's good in the past, like Rabid Young does, and put these leanings into a modern context, you create nearly the perfect combination of style and content.
