Rig Rundown: The Hives [2021]

The swift-riffing Swedes keep it simple with mended classics and a handful of saucy stomps.

The Hives are a ripping quintet that formed in Fagersta, Sweden, during the early ’90s. They exploded into American pop-culture consciousness during the garage-rock revival with a pair of chart-splashing, straight-forward stingers (2000’s Veni Vidi Vicious and 2004’s Tyrannosaurus Hives).
