“Deaf Rhino are a loud and raucous live act. The band’s recorded output — beginning with 2015’s Dirt, Rust, Chaos — captures that energy and grit while exhibiting a polish that makes it sound like Deaf Rhino will soon be reaching beyond the basements and bars of the Tri-state Area. That also comes through on their latest track, “Can’t Say It Ain’t True.” – Cooldadmusic.com
