The rising rock force that is 100 Watt Shine impressively collaborate with the one and only Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow’s guitarist) for this stylish, foot-stomping anthem The Devil You Don’t Know.
Freshly released from their upcoming album Spirits, the single leads with a simple yet satisfying vocal progression of short lines that rise and fall in unison with the main riff.
Underneath this, the rhythm follows something of an Importance of Being Idle stomp and build up, and meanwhile the extended set-up welcomes fragments of electric guitar and solo-work for an increasingly satisfying, ‘begs to be played at volume’ classic rock arrangement.
Featuring faultless bass work for a clear sense of warmth, dynamic and depth alongside the drum line and passionate vocal pace, The Devil You Don’t Know quickly enthralls its audience, and proves a timeless, gritty rock anthem, with a clear air of authenticity in terms of the live show potential.
100 Watt Shine are naturally becoming a must-see band for the year ahead.
