((Rarechild)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Rarechild is a new NYC band featuring Michael Friedrich of Rahim. Do you remember Rahim? We loved those dudes and always thought they could've, should've, would've gone big time. We miss them, but we're certainly glad to have Rarechild fill that empty hole in our music hearts.

Playing slightly ominous sounding pop, Rarechild leaves the listener with a satisfactory edge. Maybe it's the heavy percussion throughout these songs that makes things sound ever-so slightly menacing. Maybe it's the scattered synths that make everything a little skittish. Maybe it is Friedrich singing like someone is about to round the corner and get all crazy on him that gets things sounding creepy. But we like that kind of pop.

Rarechild is super catchy but they also keep us on our toes. You can clap along to this, but hold on to your can of mace while you do. You never know who's coming around that corner for YOU.
