About New York Rifles: New York Rifles, from Portland, OR, is the impudent progeny of guitarist/lead singer Scott Young, joined in musical ranks by Nate James (drums) and Jamie Gould (bass). Amidst Young’s lyrics of social transgressions and private loss is a driving, slop-pop-rock guitar, flanked by backing vocals and coerced into cohesion by an ebb and flow rhythm section.
New York Rifles sounds like: The Stranglers of The Soft Boys, riding in The Cars, wearing X-Ray Spex, listening for The Undertones,and upsetting The Saints for touching The Buzzcocks, while high on X. Oh Yeah, also, they rock.
