Rich Kid Express to release new EP in late summer 2022
Rich Kid Express featuring multi-instrumentalist Rob Richardson will be releasing a new EP titled Under The Purple Lights via Squib Kick Records in late summer 2022.
Squib Kick Records‘ website indicates: “Rich Kid Express – returns later this Summer ’22 with a brand new EP entitled “Under The Purple Lights“. This teaser video is just a raw, unmixed sampler for some of the upcoming tunes. Besides finishing up some last minute vocals and guitar bits, the EP is essentially ready for the mix stage. Long range for RKE is another EP to follow in Winter of ’22/23 as well.”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Rich Kid Express‘ last album Psychodelic: “Just like on the EP Bubblegum Radio, Rich Kid Express keep the songs simple without reinventing the wheel. Those lyrics actually pop up on the last track “R.K.R.” so clearly, Richardson is doing this intentionally and that’s a great thing. Many bands could learn from Rich Kid Express on how to keep things simple and allow the songs to breathe rather than cram them with too many ideas at once. As an example, take “Cross The Line” which is my favorite song by far on Psychodelic. It’s got a very simple riff and melody, and just sucks you in. My fingers can’t help but start moving as I hear the simple but effective guitar melody.”
