The Rifles hit the target


WITH their new album Great Escape, The Rifles are sure to be shooting up the charts.
A retro rocker which doffs its cap towards the likes of Carl Barat and Paul Weller, there's nothing here particularly new or innovative - it's just straightforward British indie rock.
Luckily it's done pretty well by the London four-piece, who deliver energetic tracks like The Great Escape and Fall To Sorrow with both barrels.
There's some dips in quality over the course of the LP, but for fans of the simple pleasures of indie rock this is well worth a shot.
