Revere

London (UK) band REVERE incorporate violin, cello, keys, trumpet and harp into a guitar-led sound, touching on numerous musical reference points, combining elements of gypsy marches, klezmer, post rock, film scores and gospel into a truly unique sound. Live, REVERE play with an unparalleled intensity, working songs from music-box soft openings into relentless walls of sound shot through with a show-stopping falsetto. --------------------------- "An extraordinary widescreen technicolor epic of a song...a stunning single by a stunning band..."
