When it comes to music, one of the things I appreciate most is when an artist or band strays from the crowd and strives to create something completely original, or at least infuse their own style into a genre. This is something you will see is especially the case with my top two favourite albums.
Don Broco hit the UK music scene with a pretty standard hard rock album ‘Priorities’ in 2012, quickly becoming, somewhat, the sweethearts of British rock. Although an impressive debut album, what followed completely changed my thoughts on the four piece.
‘Automatic’ which was released in the summer of 2015 is exactly the rock album I had been waiting to stumble upon for years. It is the perfect fusion of pop and rock with an unexpected but much appreciated hint of funk that is bound to leave you mind-blown.
Album opener ‘Superlove’ braces the listener for the quirky, pop riddled anthems scattered throughout, while self-titled track ‘Automatic’ follows which is the closest thing to the ‘sound of summer’ that I have ever heard. There are also unexpected heartfelt ballads such as ‘What You Do To Me’ and ‘Nerve’ which are just as infectious and euphoric as the more upbeat numbers.
After what feels like the longest wait, Don Broco are finally unveiling their third studio album ‘Technology’ in February 2018, so if you like what you’ve read so far, the best is yet to come.
