It’s the kind of rock that’s played during a crummy American drama, as the credits begin to roll after a loony remark of wit, humour or general triumph. Rhode Island Red is a super smooth, light production, that’s meant to be listened too while sipping a few margaritas with your date. Made up of three tracks, this single floats within the boundaries of pop rock, relying on front woman Lyla D’Souza to carry the band through uplifting choruses, and massive key changes. With that said it’s difficult to fault Kerosene; laden in great musicianship, catchy tunes, and solid production. Their definition will ultimately be down to D’Souza’s vocal, and the question still remains unanswered - can she carry them through an entire full length? In any case, this is a very promising, accomplished preview.

7/10 Powerplay issue #134
