The Rifles - Minute Mile (Cooking Vinyl Records) 
The Rifles - Minute Mile

Release Date: 11th November 2013

Indie-pop-rockers The Rifles hail from London town and are armed with some fine 'n' dandy melodies with which to knock your socks off. 'Minute Mile' is a bright, sparky and bouncy mug of indie-pop tea that has got at least three lumps in it and good splash of milk. It hits the spot and is refreshing in a lot of ways but I made the mistake of reading that the Times described the Rifles as "life affirming pop" and I think that's taking it a little far. As good as 'Minute Mile' is, I would suggest the music journalists at the Times need to get out more or expand on their horizons if their life has been affirmed by the chirpy, cheeky, fun indie shenanigans of the Rifles.
