That New Band Smell: Bravo Columbo

Post categories:

ATL | 16:04 UK time, Tuesday, 18 October 2011


Greetings stench followers. This week we have three ripe new bands for your consideration. We start with some good old bar room classic rock, then take the bpm and double time it for some Belfast based hardcore,  finishing calmly with a some soul induced electronica.


'Tric - Love on the Rocks
Good old fashioned classic rock. Think 'The Greatest Guitar Album in The World' but only one track and from Belfast.

By Any Means - Built on Respect
Belfast Hardcore with a vicious smear of metal.

Bravo Columbo - Lock
Bravo Columbo is the studio project of Derry/Londonderry's Scott Walker, not the baroque crooner who sang Joanna, he's a bit passed it for this fresh exciting feature don't you think? Bravo Columbo began writing and recording two years ago but has just come on ATL's radar thanks to Radio Foyle/Ulster's new music maverick Steven McCauley.

The body of material we hold in our memory bank is very encouraging. The songs are timeless excerpts of melancholy planted in a modern electronica template. 'Lock' is reminiscent of James Blake, the vocal is soulful and desperate and evokes the same feeling of empathy you would get listening to a downbeat Ryan Adams track. You can judge for yourself as we have said track streaming below for your enjoyment.
