October Sky – ‘Rise’ (EP stream) (premiere)

Brute force, progressive rock experimentation, and slick production highlight the latest EP by the Canadian duo.

The Montreal duo of Karl Raymond and Alex Racine have been churning out heavy rock for the past decade as October Sky, slowly building a reputation as a promising young live act. Their latest EP Rise, which comes out on 9 October, continues that ascent. Combining the force of similar UK duo Royal Blood with the progressive tendencies of Muse, the new tunes are sleek and visceral, and well worth hearing. Which, as it so happens, you can do below.
