Brand New – “At The Bottom”

August 10, 2009

brand new at the bottom

There are worse bands to be rip off than Modest Mouse so I’m pretty pleased with “At The Bottom”, the latest single from evolved emo stalwarts Brand New (the love of my teenage years). Mike Sapone makes the drums so loud, almost as loud as Jesse Lacey’s screaming, who once again provides his own backing vocals. The guitar goes grunge in the chorus but remains Brock-ish in the verses and the breakdown is amplified again by Sapone’s layered, polished, but intense production. The usually lyrically brilliant band are a bit repetitive here little here but perhaps they are saving all their good lines for the rest of the album. Not a huge change in sound from their last album, it seems like this band has finally found a style they want to stick with.

Their new album Daisy, is due out 22nd of September.
