In the world of animated vehicular robots, The Constructicons are a special team of six Transformers that combine to create the ultimate fighting machine known as Devastator.
Funny enough, The Rescues share a similar blueprint. The band is made up of four established singer-songwriters (Adrianne Gonzalez, Kyler England, Gabriel Mann and Rob Giles), who combined in 2008 to form a songwriter supergroup. Yet unlike their robot counterparts, this team uses their powers for good, not evil.
When you put four solo talents in a room together to flesh out songs, the stakes are always high. Too often the result is a disjointed compromise of styles. Luckily, The Rescues trim the fat and deliver unified and exciting arrangements on their sophomore release, Let Loose The Horses. Whether it’s the romantic sweep of the title track with its four part, call-and-response vocal harmonies or the bluesy bohemia of “Can’t Stand The Rain,” the group understands that a great joyride is knowing when to veer and when to merge.
The Rescues have already been featured on Grey’s Anatomy and the major motion picture, The Lucky Ones, and completed a residency at the famous Hotel Café in Los Angeles—proving that you don’t have to be a robot to combine forces and kick some serious ass.
