Band: BLACK ROAD, NEW ROAD
Who: A fresh 7-piece collective out of London
Album: FOR THE FIRST TIME – debut LP
Released: 5 February 2021
NME: “The Ninja Tune-signed septet’s debut album – although just six tracks long – is bursting with ideas… ‘For The First Time’ is a triumph, both as a document of who this band have been up to now, and a thrilling hint as to where they may head next.” Full review here. Score: 5/5.
Turn Up The Volume says: Like Pavement going prog rock with the sound-exploring
state of mind of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Jazzy and classical music textures make sure your curious mind is focused all the time. And singer Isaac Wood‘s voice resonates freakishly identical as the chilling voice of American songwriter Conor Oberst from indie band Bright Eyes. It’s not a happy record, but who needs cheesy pop tunes all the time in these science-fiction-like times, anyway. I know it’s their first time, but these hungry noise crusaders will stun us again and again in the future. Believe the hype.
