Huxley with Palaceburn & Gristmill at MilkBoy
Friday, January 14th, 2021
7:30 PM Doors // 8:30 PM Show // 21+
Hard rock is nothing without swaggering bravado, and Huxley has it in spades. The New Jersey natives ooze a sense of self-confidence on their debut EP. Catchiness carries through the new material. "If I Ruled The World" shows a band bursting with eagerness and determination, but each track packs a formidable punch, with the mature songwriting and anthemic choruses to put them in the same league as Alter Bridge and Velvet Revolver. The riffing is immediate, with subtle nods to technicality, and undermined by a tight rhythm section. Singer Doug channels Corey Taylor in Stone Sour mode in his impassioned delivery, whether in softer moments or gritty belting on "Girl Thang". The production, ably handled by Chris Kelly of Galactic Empire, allows each layer to shine, and with closed eyes, it's easy to imagine these five leveling venues.
In short, these hits easily rival those of the stadium rock acts that Huxley is inspired by, and judging by the caliber of this EP, it won't be long before they join them on those stages. Your new favorite rock band is in town!
