If you happen to ask THE ROOKS about their sound, chances are they’ll mutter some blurry portrait of Frank Ocean, J Dilla, and the Talking Heads getting drunk at a dive bar in the year 2023, while Justin Vernon waits in the car to drive everyone home. They promise this will make more sense after a listen.

 

The Rooks have spent the last three years and change making noise across New York City and the greater Northeast, gaining substantial recognition for recent releases “Secrets” and “Intermission (Wires)” (both premiered on Okayplayer), as well as hard-hitting performances at Irving Plaza, Mercury Lounge, Brooklyn Bowl and the second highest grossing residency in Pianos NYC history. Their Deli Magazine’s Artist of The Month award (Feb 2014) and recent nomination for the 14th Annual Independent Music Awards in the R&B/Soul category have provided further acclaim, and given their parents a tangible means of bragging about their children.

 

The Rooks are currently prepping the release of their second EP, Wires, and booking shows just about anywhere you’ll have them. They would love for you to join the party, because they’re having an incredible time!
