“There is no one that wouldn't be impressed by Rag n' Bone." - Cool Perth Nights / The Big Splash
“...quite easily one of the most exciting bands to have really stepped out in the last 12 months” – Rotunda Media
“...compelling drive and dynamic aesthetic” – The Music
Rag n' Bone are a band with shared interests in distortion, despair and decadence. Their finely honed and sharp sound, twisted and cracked to form through countless live shows, has been described as spanning 'a spectrum that ranges from breathtaking ballads to noise-heavy Post-Punk' (Rotunda Media), with references that vary from Savages, The Birthday Party & Midnight Oil.
It's been an incredible 12 months for Rag n' Bone including the release of their debut EP “A Woman Under The Influence”, winning 2 WAM Song of the Year awards (Rock & Punk) and travelling overseas to play “Rock A La Buse Festival”. In 2015 the affectionately known ‘Boners’ garnered huge support for their live show after playing across Perth, WA and other Australian cities including Melbourne & Adelaide. Their single “Wood & Wire”, earned the band multiple nominations in the 2015 WAM Song of the Year Awards (Winning the Punk/Hardcore category) and regular rotation on Australian digital radio; Triple J Unearthed - as well as national community radio stations.
Rag n' Bone were added to an array of festival lineups including Hyperfest (All Ages), State of The Art, Beaufort Street Festival and WAM Festival's 'Bloc Party' where they received rave reviews for their show - Rotunda Media describing them as 'one of the best sets of the day' and Split United's (China) CEO Archie Hamilton mentioning the band as his personal highlight of the event.
Its 2016 & Rag n' Bone have just taken out the much coveted Rock Song of The Year Award with their track “Death Rattle Waltz” (previous winners include Tired Lion & Eleventh He Reaches London)
The band also return from their first overseas show with the announcement of the searing, searching track
“I Don't Feel at Home In This World Anymore”, that is as much about the mistreatment of refugees, gender identity and cultural re-appropriation as it is about huge riffs, crumbling floor toms and slide guitar.
Recorded by resident magician Dave Parkin (Snowman, Jebediah), its the first taste of the band's forthcoming debut album which the band describes as global yet grounded in the personal; a reaction to prejudice.
The release will not only be a great step forward but a call to action from one of Perth's most exciting and dynamic live acts.
