The Brookes: 'Spaceship Rodeo' / Single Review
Grimsby based band The Brookes is back with a new single, ‘Spaceship Rodeo’. The song combines influences from The Cure, Kings of Leon, and Nick Cave; showcasing the contrast and variety of sounds and styles within the single. The Brookes consists of Bonge Keal (vocals, guitar), Fraser Macdonald (lead guitar), Elliott Gant (bass), and Dylan Youles (drums). The Brookes recently played Tramlines Festival presented by Modern Age Music and the single has received support from BBC Introducing Lincolnshire.
‘Spaceship Rodeo’ begins much like a true spaceship with the spacial elements that go around at the beginning of the song. The electric guitar can’t go out without any mention, one of the main elements parallel to the spacial sound in the background. The track has a great sound quality, with a very clear sense of each instrument taking its own place without colliding with the rest of the instrumentation. The single is full of dynamics: the guitar solo and the vocals come up with all intentions of representation of the rock genre.
‘Spaceship Rodeo’ is a sea full of surprises, where the tonalities are the water and the instruments are the sand.
