Sons of Liberty - ‘Shinola’

Liberated rather than anarchic, from the Deep South West of England, Sons of Liberty are here to fly the flag for their brothers across the pond. 
Born from a love of southern rock and a rooted need for performance, the fivesome created a loving live tribute and have been kicking out whiskey-soaked, blue-collar vintage drinking songs ever since. 
They’ve just released their debut EP Shinola, which pays homage to their heroes. Home grown lyrical thoughtfulness and playful vigour, the tracks are heavy on the bass and drums with self-assured sliding guitars and warm warbling vocals.
The five tracks slip schizophrenically from the ass-kicking jams of Brotherhood to the soothingly mellow musings of Looking For A Good Time, but each easily making friends with its neighbours Skynyrd and Blackfoot. If a back road country dive were looking for something new for the jukebox, they could do worse than to give this a spin. 
They’ve already established a reputation for themselves on a thriving country-fringed live music circuit and have plenty more shows to come this year. If you want a shot of fire in your belly rock ‘n’ roll that’s a taste of what to expect at a live show, then put on your best stomping boots, pour yourself a strong one and welcome in some southern hospitality.
