The Reklaws are a brother-sister country-pop duo from Cambridge, ON; their short-and-sweet EP, Long Live the Night, combines a diverse mix of genres.
The title track assumes an electronic quality with a pop-folk melody. It is difficult to pinpoint the country element in "Last Call," because it is lost in a hybrid of hip-hop and pop. The catchy rustic treasure "Wish You Were Beer" maintains a fidelity to country music, with a genuine chorus chant evocative of Blake Shelton's "Doing It To Country Songs."
The Reklaws are still in the infancy stage of their career. The struggle to find their voice is apparent, but by combining a bunch of genres together to test the market, their approach is tactical. (Universal)
