Young Rival

Recently signed to Paper Bag Records, Hamilton's Young Rival have been working on new material with producer Graham Walsh (Viet Cong, Alvvays, METZ).  They entered the studio to record with no deadlines and an unrelenting vision of sound.  The band’s Aron D’Alesio, Noah Fralick and John Smith took a large bag of songs and have worked them until they were more “Young Rival” than Young Rival has ever been before. Best described as Roy Orbison tripping on acid with Ray Davies and Bradford Cox.  Let’s call it “croon-psych” and let’s play it loud.
