Black Country, New Road

Black Country, New Road

One of the most elusive bands of the moment is without question Black Country, New Road. Breakthrough song ‘Sunglasses’ could actually be considered short for its nine minutes given the incredible breath of impressions the song offers. Brittle guitar noise forms a freakish alliance with a jeering brass section, as frontman Jason Isaac explores the most grotesque corners of the human psyche with his demented monologues. In that respect is Black Country, New Road is the perfect band name: with so many black pages in recent history, this bunch is carving out an unknown new path in fringe guitar-based music, a path we shall follow with plenty of thrills and attentiveness.
