The shimmering, jangling guitars and harmonies of Perth band Rinehearts seemingly captures the brilliant bright Western Australian sunshine in their sound, and temper it with just a shake of yearning and melancholia. Their new single ‘Could You Would You’ is a prime example – a twelve-string onslaught of powered pop that soars on layered harmonies and a breezy melody that blows like the gale force winds off the southern coast of Albany.
Rinehearts again have captured a sixties carefree energy and burnished it with a contemporary sheen, wearing Byrdsian undergarments with a paisley vest and velvet suit while joining the Teenage Fanclub in updating to the modern world.
‘Could You Would You’ is out today and available to download and stream through all the usual sites and through the link below.
Rinehearts, who comprise former members of Screwtop Detonators and Snowman, have also announced announced the October 13 release of their second album, ‘Full Bloom’, through Cheersquad Records & Tapes in Australia and New Zealand, and venerable power pop institutions Kool Kat and Rock Indiana in the US and Spain. They have also announced their Full Bloom tour, taking in shows in Victoria and WA in October.
The band has been lucky enough to work with none other than legendary musician/songwriter/producer Dom Mariani (The Stems/DM3/The Some Loves/ Datura4) on production duties for the new recordings. A longtime fellow Perth resident, Mariani has described Rineharts as:
that rare band that you come across from time to time, doing their thing without a lot of fuss, but with true dedication and a knack for crafting perfect pop.
