Rhymes performed at the Folk & Rock Festival August 11th, the same evening as Slowgold and Pugh Rogefeldt. After that, the first show in Germany is waiting at the classic Molotow club in Hamburg, just a stone’s throw from the stage where Beatles found its shape in the early 60’s.
September 1:st the new single “Let’s Do This” is released – a song about letting everything go and just move on.
– The core of this band is no brakes and blind energy. This song starts the party and is the fall’s indie explosion, says Tomas Karlsson, singer.
Rhymes first single “Drama” rotated on Sweden’s Radio 2016!
So damn good, that amazing energy. This is really a band to keep track of, this is just the beginning! “- Liselott Lindberg, Livenews.se
“Energetic … the bands intense energy on the stage makes the music vibrate even more in the room than it already does” – Anders Berglöf, UNT
“The band took over the stage … galloping over an inviting indiepop landscape capturing the immortality of the youth.” – David Rydell, ERGO
Let’s Do This is released on Spotify and all other digital music services on September 1, 2017.
When the successful band Frantic Sunday took a break in 2016, the new band RHYMES arose from the ashes! – The new single “Let´s Do This ” – is to be released September 1st – A brand new adventure. Punk in your soul, pop in your face.
Rhymes was founded in Uppsala in January 2016 and the drug is called music. Music that breaks down the barriers between the audience and the band, music becomes blind energy that takes over everything in the room and fills your head. After the last notes of the premiere concert, the crowd continued to sing. And regardless of what has been and what is to come, there is only now.
The members of Rhymes have all played in other Swedish bands before. The singer Tomas Karlsson fronted Uppsala Quartet Frantic Sunday, they did over 130 shows in the US, Canada, Germany, Czech Republic, Norway and Sweden, and got three singles on rotation on the National Radio P3.
( “The City is listening”, “Heart Beats and Sound Systems”, and “We’re the Future” great reviews in both the Bulletin Board (5/6) as the VF (4/5), Sundsvall newspaper (4/5) and Arbetarbladet (4/5).
“5/5 … So good that I want to put six out of 5 points … nothing less than magical. I leave the scene speechless, exhausted and totally happy. “(David Olgarsson, Dagbladet)
