THE ROLLING PEOPLE - ILL BE THERE

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM THE ROLLING PEOPLE – ILL BE THERE

Manchester, the city that gave birth to some of the most iconic bands in British music history, continues to churn out talent like a factory of rock ‘n’ roll dreams. Enter The Rolling People, the latest lads from the rainy streets, armed with their debut single “I’ll Be There.”

In a musical landscape where anthems seem as rare as a sunny day in Manchester, The Rolling People have taken it upon themselves to fill the void. “I’ll Be There” kicks off with the kind of gritty guitar riff that instantly transports you to a dimly lit indie club, sticky floors and all. It’s the sound of a band that’s spent more than a few nights belting out tunes in the dingiest of venues, and it shows in the raw energy they bring to the table.

But let’s talk about the elephant in the room: originality. While The Rolling People wear their influences proudly on their sleeve – think Stone Roses meets Arctic Monkeys with a dash of Oasis swagger – “I’ll Be There” struggles to carve out its own identity. It’s like catching a glimpse of your reflection in a murky puddle – familiar, but lacking clarity.

Lyrically, the band aims for the stars with a theme of camaraderie and support in the face of life’s struggles. Yet, amidst the raucous guitars and pounding drums, the message gets a bit lost in translation. It’s like trying to have a heart-to-heart conversation in the middle of a mosh pit – admirable, but ultimately drowned out by the chaos.

That said, there’s no denying the infectious energy that The Rolling People bring to the table. “I’ll Be There” is a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart, guaranteed to get even the most stoic of listeners tapping their feet. And hey, in a world where authenticity is as rare as a decent cuppa outside of England, perhaps there’s something to be said for a band that wears their influences proudly, even if it’s a tad on the nose.

So, will The Rolling People be the next big thing to emerge from Manchester’s musical melting pot? Only time will tell. But for now, “I’ll Be There” serves as a promising debut, a love letter to the city that birthed them and a reminder that sometimes, all you need is a killer guitar riff and a whole lot of attitude to make your mark on the world.
