#204: The Rifles - Minute Mile (single review)

The Rifles

Minute Mile

November 11 2013 (Cooking Vinyl Records)


London four-piece The Rifles have been doing the rounds in some iteration or another for almost ten years now. In that time they've garnered some friends in pretty high places, such as Paul Weller and, the band that inspired them, Oasis, they've scored fairly highly in the UK Album Charts and even, allegedly, been in trouble with the Mafia. Now, ahead of their fourth album 'None the Wiser', and back with their original line-up, The Rifles are set to release new single 'Minute Mile', three and a half minutes of charmingly inoffensive indie-pop that's as indebted to American indie, as it is it's British counterpart.
