The Minority Rule are a four piece, Ayrshire based band who consider themselves to be Musically Rock, stylishly Punk, they are made up of Michael McFarlane on Guitar, Nick Wardrop on Vocals, Gregor Ritchie on Bass and Leona Broadfoot on Drums. If you would like to find out more about the band then check out this interview I did with them, which you can check out here.
‘MTV’ was the first of the two songs and considering my love hate relationship with that channel I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel but immediately I was won over by MTV and its sweet opening riff that made me want to go back and watch Scott Pilgrim for reasons that aren’t quite clear. This song has a lot of energy and is just the epitome of a punk song. The entire song just seemed like an ode to the classics like the sex pistols, a lot of righteous anger and raw sounds. I really liked this track and encourage as many of you to listen to it as possible.
‘Her Black Dog’ was a little different to the first track, although it still has some kickass guitar riffs which I loved. Something that both songs have in common is that they aren’t overproduced, this track and MTV were meant to be listened to, meant to be heard while you’re dancing in front of a stage spilling beer on your mates….note to the readers though don’t waste beer. It just feels real and The Minority Rule need to be commended for that. They’ve managed to do in two songs what a lot of bands struggle to do.
So that’s what I thought of The Minority Rule’s Demo Tracks and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify. Make sure and support the band by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
