I swell with pride every time I play a RBTS WIN song on my Bluetooth at home. The select times I get to play DJ for our friends out of town, or even my peeps who have heard “Death Magic” a thousand times, I am historically loud and proud about this trio who calls Asheville home. When we are listening to RBTS WIN, you are fucking liking it. Guaranteed.
From the lushness of Javi’s synths to the subversive sweetness of Josh’s guitar and Brien (Cliff B)’s unmistakable, sturdy voice, RBTS WIN is a band worth their salt. They’ve been putting in the work for years, and it shows in their evolving sound. Their 2014 album Palm Sunday is still a staple in my rotation, and their new album Sensitivity Kit is on a fast track to do the same.
