New Music Monday: 'Blank Canvas' by The Brookes
The Brookes are a four piece band hailing from Grimsby, UK.
Today, we will be talking about The Brookes' track 'Blank Canvas', released on 9th September 2016.
The track is introduced with shattered guitar tones and a beat punctuated by the odd cymbal crash as momentum is enhanced with the addition of a throbbing bass line.
First impression: Reminiscent of Arctic Monkeys type vibes.
The song really gets going when the vocal enters.
Raw - Gritty - Laid Back
Having listened to 'Blank Canvas' a few times now, I would definitely say this is a song that I can imagine doing that slightly odd head bobbing thing to live.
Towards the end of the track there is an extensive guitar solo, really emphasising how guitar driven 'Blank Canvas' is.
This leads into a final rendition of the chorus that features a beat and guitar riff mix that will keep your foot tapping and be buzzing around in your mind for hours.
In summary: A nice, gritty alternative rock track. I look forward to hearing more of The Brookes.
Until next time...
