RVIVR - Life Moves 7"


I decided to keep the ball rolling on male/female dual vocaists with this post and RVIVR is a great band to go with. Another offshoot of Latterman/Shorebirds, RVIVR is a pop-punk band that does everything right. Their vocals are scruffy, their hooks are tight, and their "whoa-ohs" are as well placed as any pop-punk band you'll hear.

Life Moves is a 7" that sounds like it was recorded in a basement. For some releases, that might not be a good thing. For this one, it is absolutely fucking perfect. The basement sound makes you want to drop everything you are doing right now, buy some beer, find a basement show to crash and have the best time of your life. The songs, like Shorebirds songs, are not about girls. This band doesn't want to whine about feelings, they want to smash a public officials face with a brick. That doesn't make the songs any less catchy, though, and I guarantee you will be humming every one of these tracks all day. This is one of my favorite releases ever and is, unfortunately, now completely sold out, so download away, sing the fuck out of these songs, and get pumped for the full length that they are recording right now.
