rYDER THE EAGLE – wednesday 14th
Strength. Romanticism. Those two words plainly define Ryder The Eagle, fierce drummer turned into a dirty crooner. Ryder howls love and whispers hate through songs that are just like his bike: stripped-down, rusted, roaring. We may think of Beck, Julian Casablancas or The Walkmen. But we know one thing for sure: Ryder The Eagle is riding fast on the road to sincerity and nothing will stop him. It’s rock, it sweats, it’s stirring and dark ! This big fan of motorcycle in a rock aesthetic seeks a new breath in music.
