Gramercy Theatre, New York City, NY
12th November 2018
Review by Andy Jansons
It’s not every night you hear a lady yell at you “get ready to get boned”… but that is exactly what lead singer Rosie Bones, from British born, female duo, rock band Bones declared to the audience right after ‘Happy’, the opening song of their set. She said that shortly after taking a sip from her whiskey flask. What a character!
Bones are currently on tour, supporting American fashion-art rock band Palaye Royale. On November 12th they made a stop, for a sold out show, in New York City’s Gramercy Theatre. Bones started out in London, UK but now call LA their residence!
Bones are stylish, provocative and ultra-talented and although, as of now, they have no record released, they still have a decent amount of songs for a set. Their most popular with the public seemed to be single ‘Beautiful Is Boring’ and the David Bowie cover ‘I’m Afraid Of Americans’. Rosie sings with a devilish style, she like toying with the audience while delivering lyrics that give a middle finger to the sky. Carmen Vandenberg is simply amazing on guitar, delivering solos like a seasoned rock star. They incorporate Blues, Alternative & Indie Rock in their style of playing and have defined themselves as ‘Future Rock’. Both ladies have a great chemistry on stage and it’s simply a matter of the time until Bones hit the big time!
