Last month, The Broxton Hundred released their single “Walk On The Wire” and we were very lucky to have been sent this! Here’s what we thought…
The intro to this track quickly builds up in a more modern fashion than how Don Felder started “Heavy Metal (Takin’ a Ride)” – which is a classic song. We digress, but the bass guitar is clearly in command of this song, which worked very well. We very much liked the way the acoustic and electric guitars worked very well together – it’s something we’ve heard many artists attempt (as of recent) but we felt that The Broxton Hundred pulled it off in a very demonstrable example of musical competence.
About two-thirds of the way into the song we were treated to a very nice guitar solo, with great tone and great use of effects that really complimented this track nicely. Bravo! The drummer sounds incredibly tight, as does the rest of the band, and it’s really refreshing to hear. The lead singer demonstrates actual range! Something that seems surprising to come by lately.
The Broxton Hundred sticks out from an over-saturated Indie market, you can clearly hear character from each of the members and we very much look forward to hearing more from them!
A big thank you to the band for sending us along the track and photos to use!
