Formed inragdollcoverart 2010 in the hotbed of rock that is Australia, Ragdoll have an intense desire to inject new life into the music they love, incorporating elements of classic rock, hard rock and progressive rock and rebuilding them into this modern hybrid.


The trio kick in their second EP with the hard rocking title track, 'Here Today', with a big sound that could be easily noted as a four or five piece outfit. Full to the rafters rocking 'Tell Me' rolls onwards with a kinda Audioslave groove but with a typical classic rock vocal delivery care of bassist/singer Ryan Rafferty playing it large.


The group show off their mellower side on 'Could It Be Love', a great commercial power ballad that thrives within the smooth studio production. 'Heaven Above' is a brilliantly structured composition and the instrumentation performance of guitarist Leon Todd and drummer Cam Barrett alongside the aforementioned Rafferty is something of note. The rocking concludes on the bluesy influenced rock out of 'Overnight Sensation'.


'Here Today'... and tomorrow, the future is bright for Ragdoll.
