Did you ever doubt it? Of course they can! and they have with a stunning collection of beautifully poised tracks that just envelop you from the off, the album’s opener and single ‘Running With The Wolves’ is a highly addictive number and one which delivers an immediate impact that just confirms that these lads have still got that Midas touch. It is an absolute banger of a track that will have you up and shaking yo’ booty in no time. Produced by The Wind and The Wave’s Dwight Baker at Bear Creek Studios in Austin, Texas, these 13 new songs have the fresh feel of a band looking to seriously move the needle; all of the personal, emotive aspects of the Broken Witt Rebels’ sound remain intact, but now everything is honed to a sharper point, the vision bigger and broader, the production giving full rein to the commercial ambition of the songs.“We didn’t want to go to Austin and make the first album again,” says Core. “We wanted to change the parameters.”What this meant in practice was a fully-fledged rock ‘n’ roll experience that saw the band embracing the American lifestyle whilst not losing sight of their own ‘Midlands’ culture, as highlighted in the personal, spine-tingling album closer, ‘Birmingham’. “I can’t remember there being a song about Birmingham unless it’s Birmingham Alabama,”smiles Core. “But these are our experiences, this is where we’re from…” The album as a whole is a beautifully produced and refined package that allows the lads to fully express their creative side to the full, multi-layered, soulful, bluesy and dripping in quality the Broken Witt Rebels are one of the finest talents out there currently on the UK scene, Possibly one of the UK’s best-kept secrets and whilst we all love being on the ground floor when a band breaks through, if a band was deserving of notoriety then these kids are. The songwriting shows the band’s maturity, delivered across thirteen thought-provoking, emotive and rockin’ tunes that just grab you and don’t let go.
