Black Country, New Road at The Fader

Londoners Black Country, New Road have nearly nine minutes to play with on “Sunglasses,” and they fill their wiry and tense song with mentions of everything from Scandi-noir and Big Pharma to the deep-seated fear of turning into your parents.

Drahla review at The Guardian

...scratchy-yet-melodious chord progressions, riffs more jagged than a mountain range, mean basslines and their singer’s hushed yet swaggering performance.

This is the kind of songwriting quality that bands can take years to reach, or never reach at all: brilliant, top to bottom.

The Murder Capital are outrageously exciting live. The young Dublin quintet’s brutal art-punk rock is thrilling on the edge of terrifying: new year fireworks in a metal tent.
