Check out the unpredictable noise of Black Country, New Road, this week's hottest brand new act...
KEY TRACK: Athen’s, France
MANAGEMENT: Dan McEvoy
WHO: Black Country, New Road’s six-piece line up features singer and guitarist Isaac, synth player May, bassist Tyler, saxophonist Lewis, violinist Georgia and drummer Charlie. First names only, folks.
WHAT: Unpredictable, singular and compellingly hard to categorise. Fans of The Fall, dense lyrical storytelling and blasts of noise will approve.
WHERE: The majority of the band come from Cambridge, but they’re cutting their teeth in London, where they’ve began 2019 with a series of hot-ticket shows.
OK, I’M INTERESTED…
Glad to hear it. The group formed last summer, and will release a single, Athen’s, France, on Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label next month.
WHAT’S IT LIKE?
A portrait of sexual anxiety that references Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next, sourdough bread and cyber fetishes, as instruments clank and grind with abandon.
