With their self-titled debut out now via Snakefarm Records, the quartet bring the party to London.
Broken Witt Rebels stopped by Boston Music Room in Tufnell Park last week to play us a few tracks and bath us in their extremely catchy hooks.
The band’s heavy tinge of Americana and Southern-style-infused rock sound in tunes such as Loose Change and Howlin’ is what makes their shows so great and bridges the gap between rock’n’roll and country music in the best way possible. Most people think country music is cowboy hats and stetsons, but what it is at its core, especially when mixed with rock, is an honest and raw performance of musical talent that is barely comparable.
And let’s talk about Danny Core’s unique, gritty vocals for a minute – his voice gives the band a recognizable, catchy aspect that when you’ve heard it once it will stay in your head for a long, long time.
Layered guitars and the sultry blues vibes in tracks like Shake Me Down and Snake Eyes make for extremely easy listening – in the best way possible. But don’t be fooled, the pour-yourself-a-glass-of-whiskey-and-kick-back kind of sound will have you downing shots by the end of the night and dance until morning.
It’s safe to say that with these energetic live shows, it won’t be long before the British rockers will be playing bigger venues and making a splash on 2018 with their recently released self-titled debut record.
