Black Country, New Road – For The First Time [Streaming]

British band Black Country, New Road released their debut album For The First Time on Ninja Tune.
With just six tracks, it is a pretty lengthy album filled with post-punk rock music.
Kind of reminds me of early days Ought and other post-punk acts who I can’t think off the top of my head.
One of the best and stellar debuts for 2021.

About the album:
“the group feel a collective sense of relief, one of reflection too – we think this record gives an honest representation of the way we sound when we come together and play music.
All of the good moments and some of the less good moments too.
It’s a good start, we look forward to the music being available to people and in equal parts look forward to moving on from this music.
Before the release of this record we are already hard at work preparing new music.”

Recorded with Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine) during the early part of 2020 and then finished at the end of the UK’s second nationwide lock-down, the album is the perfect capturing of a new band and all the energy, ferocity and explosive charge that comes with that whilst also demonstrating a group who have no interest in repetition, one-note approaches or letting creative stagnation set in.
