Rikshaw N’ the Ruckus has released their new video for the track titled ‘Something Worth Stealing’. Visually set up like a future classic heist film, the poetic justice let out of the minds of musical masters show that originality is alive and well in NYC.
Infectious from the start and captivating to that last note, ‘Something Worth Stealing’ is a hooked anthem from a band that is growing from the inside musically and stylistically.
the magic in the track and video rely on the genre bending fusion of street rock and machine gun staccato fused vocals. A slow burn of a rhythm with drum and bass tidal locked in soul, ‘Something Worth Stealing’ is easily something worth hearing. Again and again.
About Rikshaw N’ the Ruckus
The story of Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus starts with an end — the goal of playing a one-time show that ended up growing into something more.
Solo artist Rikshaw was prepping his latest work, “Gem.In.I” and wanted to do an album release party that was more than just performing to a backing track. A chance meeting with bassist Krisana Soponpong (previously of Black Taxi) created a duo, and Krisana’s know-how and musical connections brought in guitarist Krikor Daglian (previously of The Walk Ons). The recent addition of drummer Jan Jurgielewicz IV has brought another talented and experienced voice to the mix.
This group felt a real sound and chemistry developing. Thoughts of a one-off show were quickly pushed to the side and with a simple addition to the original name, Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus was born! Combining perceptive and penetrating rhymes with a live band and programmed elements, Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus embrace a sound that floats between hip hop, rock, and electronic
The unexpected pandemic did little to slow the band down, and they have already written a dozen new original songs and record four more set for release in the coming months. With new recordings on the way and NY opening up again for live shows, Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus is ready for their shot.
