FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF THEIR EXPLOSIVE LATEST SINGLE ‘THE ANGLER’, WE HAD A CHAT WITH RAUCOUS INDIE UPSTARTS AND ACCIDENTAL TIKTOK STARS THE RILLS.
TikTok is a kind of polarising platform in 2020. Depending on which angle you look at it at it is either the future of marketing or the absolute death of culture, and people seem to have very strong opinions on either side of the fence. The Rills are a band that seem to have caught fire on the platform through their sheer nonchalance towards it, capturing the attention of users with their non-committal approach to video-making and coming across like they couldn’t really give a shit either way.
Good marketing however, is only as good as the product that it is selling, and the bands chaotic and relentless brand of abrasive indie rock is as memorable as it is raucous. Doubters skeptical due to the whole “TikTok” way of gaining traction are likely to be bowled over by the fresh and dynamic sound that the trio have crafted. This is indie rock to smash your mates living room up to, packed full of the ceaseless hunger and energy that The Rills bring to the fore.
