Vessels stays true to Rah Rah’s indie rock roots, but applies a more refined style that plays to the band’s strengths. Their catchy melodies and poignant, heartfelt lyrics are emphasized, juxtaposed against electronic influences and group harmonies.
Though the members of Rah Rah didn’t know it at the time, it was prophetic when they named their 2008 debut full-length Going Steady. In the years since that album’s release, the Regina, SK-bred band has lived up its title with a relentless string of tours, albums and EPs. They’ve earned accolades and built a grassroots following through stunning live shows, all the while carving out a sound that spans uplifting indie rock and earthy folk and occasionally flirts with electronic influences and triumphant group-sung refrains.
