In an age where the indie rock scene has become saturated with spinoffs and sound-a-likes, this much is clear: Ravenhill is not one to be typecasted.
Armed with the immense vocal versatility of Josh Clifton, these Southern Illinois rockers have, in one album nonetheless, bridged the seemingly improbable gaps between rockabilly, blues, and good old-fashioned rock and roll. So if you ever wanted to know what the handsome lovechild of Jerry Lee Lewis, BB King, and Elvis Presley would sound like, look no further than "Lions."
Then again, we all should've seen this coming. After their debut album, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I Present to You," Ravenhill followers were clued in on a secret that the rest of us unfortunate souls were yet to realize: nothing is impossible with this band. No instrument is unplayable, no melody is out of place, no genre is out of touch. Nothing is impossible, and therefore, everything is obtainable for this dynamic group. The only question that begs to be asked is "what's next?"
