Tip of The Week: Don Broco - Beautiful Morning

Post categories:

For an unsigned band Don Broco have got a pretty impressive network behind them. Just flick over to their myspace page and you will find every musical weblink known to man.

They're half way through an action packed tour that has taken them everywhere from Colchester Twist to Cardiff's Clwb Ifor Bach to Newcastle Riverside, and if you want to see if they're swinging by your town in their final week look here.

There's something very American about this band. They seem to capture that real American punkrock pop vibe that takes me back to the days of Blink 182 and Sum 41 (cmon we've all been there), mixing high energy riffs and drumkicks with cheesy lyrics and wholesome fun. Their videos play on this too, as there's always some poor geeky guy in glasses, shirt and dungarees losing his girlfriend to the arrogant jock. You can't get any more American than that!

Just so you know, they are actually four lads from Bedford. Beautiful Morning is a classic example of their sound, and will be on the Radio 1 playlist all week. Like, totally killer dudes.
