Taking the classic 1977 sound of The Jam, and adding a contemporary edge, The Rifles aren't the years most original band, but they could be one of next years hottest.

With punk ethics and a devastating ear for melody, The Rifles are a south London band who aren't afraid to show their influences. Their new single 'Local Boy', released on Right Hook Recordings typifies their potential.
