The quartet still favour dirty guitars and alternative scuzzy rock, but where there was a bluesy element to Bootstrap's sound, Rubber Tones have the feel of US college rock bands the early 90's such as Pavement, especially with the slacker vibes of 'Clandestino', and on 'Signal To Noise' they embrace the more casual side of the grunge scene. If you've ever obsessed over Pixies, Dinosaur Jr, The Lemonheads and bands of a similar ilk, then you'll find a lot to love in Rubber Tones' sound. It'll be exciting to see how they progress as more tracks appear online, and it's gonna be a pretty safe bet that if you catch these guys live a great night will be had by all.
