The US alt-rock trio BREE release the LP New Skin in April.
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.
