RLND (pronounced Roland) is a band that isn’t simple to categorize, but if you absolutely need that kind of thing to set your mind at ease, let’s go with “prog rock with some metallic overtones.”
The San Francisco-based outfit’s forthcoming sophomore full-length collection, Zealand, is a concept album “built around our collective narrative as a capitalist society.”
Did I mention that RLND is an instrumental band? Yep, and that means that the quartet’s arrangements move at an exciting pace, continously delivering melodic nuances that keep things memorable, which isn’t always an easy task for a band this adventurous.
