Today, we continue sharing our discoveries from the Trans Musicales festival in Rennes, France, where last December we captured twelve exclusive sessions. We’re sharing with you one unique session per week, and you can watch all the previously released ones here. This week’s feature is of Eight Rounds Rapid.

DJ Morgan says of the band:

Based in Essex, Eight Rounds Rapid formed in 2012 and just released their second album Objet D’Art in March of this year. They played a set of straightforward English punk with clear blues roots. Singer David Alexander hollers out over power chords and 12 bar scales, busting out the harmonica on a couple songs. He told me after the set that Jules (bass), Simon (guitar), and Lee (drums) have been friends for a long time and started making music they all dug. Once they released their first album and played a couple of hometown gigs, they started getting some attention and have been invited a few times to play around France, Germany, and the UK. He had no expectation that the band would get any attention, but they have been enjoying the fact that they are picking up fans along the way and are excited to be releasing music.
