RiL was recommended by Kryz Reid of Third Eye Blind.
A two-piece rock band from Yokohama, it is hard not to try some comparisons to Melt Banana, the sound of each band is very different, despite a similar assertiveness.
RiL has a very full sound, so with only two people in the band it is very possible that they use some pre-recorded tracks for performance, but it still feels very live, very raw, and and very real. They are very rock.
There is a harder edge to the music that grunge fans may enjoy.
