The Duke Spirit – Lion Rip (CD Review)

See the video for ‘Lion Rip’ here.

The Duke Spirit combine the sultry drawl of Leila Moss and the spiralling guitars of the rest of the boys. The result is a fiery and the effect courses through your body before lodging itself firmly in your mind. ‘Lion Rip’ is no exception and, as the rampant drums and whirls of guitars power along, the centre of the song remains Leila’s sassy vocals. I believe there is soon to be a debut album from The Duke Spirit and from the singles and live shows I have seen it is sure to be an essential listen.,
