BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD
Black Country, New Road sound like a proper filthy juggernaut of a band, a real experience to behold. At times, colossal metal riffs mangle with frenetic jazz freakouts; occasionally film noir string motifs are motored into the urgent present with a razor tight rhythm section.
The six-piece formed from the ashes of an old project in the summer of 2018 and soon after, prpducer Dan Carey immediately got them to travel to his Streatham studio to work on fresh material for the ongoing Speedy Wunderground singles series. Athen’s, France is the group’s first release for the well-respected imprint, a horn-laden romp through the backwaters of noir rock.
