The Duke Spirit - Lion Rip
From the fertile soil of stylish rock’n’roll with Velvet Underground and Mazzy Star seeds, sprouts The Duke Spirit’s latest single – the poppy Lion Rip.
With a riff to out-sex the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and a vocal effusing Alison Mosshart (VV from The Kills) appeal, this track takes The Duke Spirit's usual dirty blues flavoured rock’n’roll and takes it to the level of catchy accessibility.
But like The Kills, The Duke Spirit bring the roll into the rock in Lion Rip. Pounding and energetic with the twangy guitar strumming heavy riffs and delving into a lost world of abandon, The Duke Spirit are for real here in Lion Rip, and in rather feather-light territory than their usual heavy Velvet Underground infused stompers.
