Born in the Flood – Anthem

If blogs did segues then this one would probably be the best. Born In The Flood come from Hermann, Missouri you see. I suppose the question you gotta ask yourself when you listen to the quartet is whether you can believe in them or not. ‘Anthem’ is quite capable of sending the listener down the pro or anti route. For me Nathaniel Rateliff successfully pours his emotions into his fiercesome delivery banishing any doubts one might have about his intentions. Ok, he may only be defending the tune he just wrote but isn’t it refreshing to hear some anger instead of the same old snotty nosed emotional fretting. The spiralling guitars heighten the tension and in parts I am reminded of the Mclusky’s red-hot ‘Alan Is A Cowboy Killer‘. If you find yourself in the anti brigade let ‘Low Flying Clouds’ reel you back in with its Kings of Leon stylings. KD

    Great find. Very intense, but not annoying, over the top intense.
