Rolls Bayce are a Brisbane three piece with some serious pop pedigree. The band is a new project for Hungry Kids of Hungary lead Dean McGrath, Neal Apel and James Wright, better known around these parts for drumming for Millions and Emerson Snowe and fostering all types of weird song requests doing DJ stints around Brisbane. While Wright is known for DJ skills, this song is definitely more for putting on at home after the club (alone, or not) than dancing.
The band do a good job of easing you into ‘Arrows’ with a smooth and slinky funk intro. McGrath has such a distinctive voice it’s hard not to immediately hear Hungry Kids of Hungary when his vocal kicks in. The drums and bassline here sounds as fresh and crisp as a brand new suit. The song has a real ‘groove’ to it, so any comparisons to Hungry’s more pop aligned catalogue are quickly shrugged off. It’s a very cool sound, and one we rarely hear done this well.
