Let it Rain

The Rusty Datsuns – Let it Rain

Let It Rain’ is the Datto’s debut EP, capturing the unique sound forged by the band during the extraordinary circumstances of Brisbane’s 2011 floods.

Raining and pouring the deftest of guitar licks, strings that tug at the heart and the most knee-bending bass this side of a double, the band takes flight into bluegrass territory with a touch of folk twang. With the voluptuous vocals of Sian Evans soaring over the resulting melodies, the quartet showcases the stylistic musings that have seen them compared to the Waifs and Angus and Julia Stone.

From the side-slapping tempo of ‘Blood on the Bluegrass’ to the wimsical strumming of ‘Gypsy’, the band show their penchant for the rhythm and groove that has seen them win over crowds across the Australian expanse. Feeling a bit dried up and wrung out? ‘Let It Rain’ is available now through Beanstalk.
