Wither is a love song, simple as that. A celebration of that special someone in your life, the one that makes everything else make sense, the reason for everything. But this is The Rocketz so obviously, it comes with the band’s unique spin on things. And so, without taking anything away from the heartfelt message, they cocoon it in a gloriously, raw and raucous rock ‘n’ roll racket.

And so what comes our way is a blend of lilting country basslines, almost rockabilly beats and big, big, big guitars but with enough space left around the edges so that everything gets to breathe and everyone gets a breather.

Their latest album Loveskick and Heartbroke is a glorious affair and Wither is just one f many, many great songs found on it. Buy it now. I mean it…stop what you are doing and order yourself a copy right now. You won’t regret it.
