Scottish band The Rah’s, stopped off at The Jacaranda as they continue their UK tour, with support from Marlie Centewar.
As The Jacaranda get ready for a week of celebrations as they turn 10 years old, starting the weekend off were Edinburgh’s The Rah’s. Getting things started in the basement was Marlie Centewar, who was armed with a warming voice and her guitar.
Centewar treated the intimate crowd to a series of covers in a unique way, unlike the originals, making them her own. Although the covers were a nice way to invoke singalongs, she did bring a song or two of her own. Giving us a glimpse of what’s to come as she currently seeks a drummer with more performances planned in the future.
The Rah’s took to the stage and gripped The Jacaranda’s attention from the first chord struck. They had a hypnotic way about their sound, with filthy drum beats on ‘If You Never Try’ and lyrics with a point to prove during ‘The Time Is Now’, The Rah’s showed they’re yet another talented band to come from Scotland.
With a combination of indie rock and a hint of Brit-pop at times, they displayed various styles that kept their sound fresh and exciting, catering for everyone in the room.
Frontman Jack’s, vocals stood out with a likeness to Liam Gallagher but it’s the whole band’s passion for the music they’ve created that stood out most on the night. They’re excitement of performing their songs reflected on to those in the basement of The Jacaranda.
The Rah’s are in the thick of a six week UK tour and are sure to turn the heat up this winter as they etch closer back to Edinburgh for a sold-out homecoming show.
