Making Waves: Black Country, New Road

Check out the unpredictable noise of Black Country, New Road, this week's hottest brand new act...

KEY TRACK: Athen’s, France
LABEL: Unsigned
MANAGEMENT: Dan McEvoy
FACEBOOK: @BlackCountryNewRoad

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.

TOP 40 HERE WE COME, THEN!

Yep, exactly!
