Still in their infancy – the Liverpool quartet Pale Rider (not to be confused with Palehorse or Palehorse/Palerider!)  have but five gigs to their name – yet when Liverpool’s iconic Parr Street Studios come calling you know they’ve pricked the interest of the city and its music fans.
 
Recorded in one five-hour session by producer Chris Taylor (The Coral), their debut single I Run On Rain is a furious titan of rock & roll magik which has captured the imagination of the North West music press.
 
Underpinned by a fuzz-fuelled bass line the track crashes like a steely wrecking ball before detonating into a heavyweight lightning bolt of guitar pangs and blistering vocals. The track reaches it’s zenith with a drenching of heroic instrumentation conjuring imagery of The Verve‘s Nick McCabe tackling Prince‘s Let’s Go Crazy. “I think the video, all VHS footage from our recent escapades, are a good indication of how frenzied and deranged our stage show’s becoming.” said Ben from the band. Check it out.
