BROSNAN – FLASH HARRY (Review)

HAVE YOU HEARD BROSNAN? THEIR DEBUT SINGLE FLASH HARRY IS A MUST LISTEN.

BROSNAN are an indie band from Hull, they’ve had support slots on Gengahr’s most recent tour and have had recognition from the BBC’s Introducing.

Their 80’s style merged with their indie pop makes for an infectious mix and that couldn’t be more apparent on their latest track “Flash Harry”.

Opening with a dramatic whirring the song bursts out into a range of colourful sounds, reflected onto the artwork of this single.

The upbeat and catchy music helps to mask the melancholy lyrics, lyrics that give the track a deeper meaning and prove that it isn’t just another flash in the pan indie track. Rory Moses’ bellows out lines like “Sun’s going down on this tired old town” and “Tell me again if I’m anxious of vain.”

“Flash Harry” has more than one dimension to it, the wailing synths sound like a mix between something you could expect from The 1975 and something you’d hear on The Osmonds “Crazy Horses” track. However, this mix just works. It fits in perfectly with the jangly riff and slow paced drum beat.

Brosnan have produced a high quality track with “Flash Harry” and it’s a certainly a must hear track.
