Kingdom of Few - Revolution

Rock n roll: "A type of popular dance music originating in the 1950s, characterized by a heavy beat and simple melodies."

Revolution: "a drastic and far-reaching change in ways of thinking and behaving"

Put those two together and what do you get? You get Calgary, Alberta, Canada indie rockers Kingdom of Few.

A long-time favorite of mine here at MY Indie Music Blog, Kingdom of Few hit our earholes with a rock no roll explosion this summer with Revolution, their highly anticipated follow-up to their 2011 debut EP, Ep. Curtis Butala, lead vocals; John Clarke, drums/vocals; Reno Serani, guitar/vocals and Alex Parks, bass/vocals, have stepped up their game in quite a substantial way. Revolution is as polished an effort as anything offered up by cookie-cutter mainstream acts. Their sound is more refined and ripe with huge stadium worthy guitar riffs and sing along worthy hooks from track to track. This is rock done right.

The only problem that I have with Revolution is that it's only a five song EP! But then, this is a genius marketing ploy by the band... it leaves you craving for more! It's easy to get lost in these five songs, though. Hit play, then hit repeat, and let Kingdom of Few take over your rock n roll soul for a while. You'll be glad that you did!

Make sure you follow the band on Twitter and like them on Facebook. Don't forget to head over to iTunes to download your copy of Revolution and grab a copy of their debut EP while you're there.

And as always, check back here with me at MY Indie Music Blog for all things Kingdom of Few as they happen.
