From the forthcoming album the opening track and lead single – Damn, I’m Being Me Again – due for release on the 11th of March.

As regular readers know I have an affinity towards voluminous bass and appropriately on Valentines Day – how could I not fall in love with a band who use a double-bass? As to be anticipated by an upright boom-box, BREE have a sound that has you slipping on the red brothel-creepers as the influences of rock-a-billy bounce around the walls, which they blend with indie-rock to deliver a sound that creates its own Pantheon in the world of music.

Damn, I’m Being Me Again, delivers exactly what it says on the tin – while the listener is able to catch snatches of other ideas BREE slow down the pace and inject a booming projection that is distinct for its very similarities.

While I could happily type away for a while about the double-bass, there is far more to the track than that alone. The drums take a pivotal role as they pull on the reigns keeping the sound compacted with double-time beats, while guitar swirls around the room giving Damn, I’m Being Me Again its texture as the distinct vocal which to the ears of a Brit, has a distinct country flavour, rounding out a track of many facets.

I am off to play this once again and maybe even send a rose of affection, when my puppy-love eyes have cleared.

  1. Love this new single, I can’t wait for the new album release, I’ve played their 1st lp, bree:”All American Girl” till all the sound’s worn off. In these days of Hip Hop, it’s so refreshing to hear some kick ass rock n roll, especially with the 50s influence and the stand up bass. Bree has a distinctive sound that grabs you by the collar and won’t let go. bree’s voice and lyrics are amazing, playful and nuanced but powerful and engaging, bree has carved out their own distinctive niche and refuses to be ignored. They kick you in the pants with their hard rockin style while the playful hooks refuse to leave your head. And if you love their record just wait till you get aload of them live…you are in for a treat UK, when they start their tour you are not gonna know what hit you. They are every bit as good, if not better, live as they are in the studio. It’s been over 50 years since the U.S. got hit with “Beatlemania”, well we are finally returning the favor…get ready for “breetlemania”!
