No Kind of Rider – Dark Ice

“Dark Ice” is the latest single from emerging indie-rock band No Kind of Rider. This song is a jam with a steady rock groove and undeniable pop-sensibility. The songwriting is so effective here, growing from a mellowed verse to an infectiously catchy chorus. The guitars are constantly in motion without ever being distracting and the drums are punchy without dragging.

There is clearly a powerful dynamic within this 5-piece band that creates a stable balance between complex instrumentation and distinct pop writing. No Kind of Rider is chill and tense all at once and it’s worth listening to this song a few times to really hear how all these elements come together.
