“Flash Harry” – Brosnan February 9, 2017

Do you like your music a little jangly, indie pop and very English? You do? then I suggest that you check out Kingston Upon Hull‘s Brosnan. Their current single is the catchy, bubbly and frankly rather spiffing “Flash Harry”. I have always admired British bands and singers who don’t go down the road of aping an American accent when playing rock ‘n’ roll. Brosnan’s singer Rory Moses is very much in that English accented rock camp with the likes of Paul Weller, the Clash, Pulp, the Libertines, Arctic Monkeys and many others. The rhythm section of Johnny Rodrigues on bass and Jake Haylett gives this three-man combo a great bedrock to their signature sounds. Jake is also the band’s producer. Also a big thank you to Mr Haylett senior for introducing me to the music of this fine northern band.

“Flash Harry” is a fine follow on from last years “Orange Wine” which was the title of their six track EP. The other five songs all showcase a band that really seem to know their stuff. I particularly love “Ceasefire Baby” and “I Don’t Mind”. I have yet to see Brosnan live but I get the feeling from listening to their stuff on Soundcloud (click here for their page) that they will be pretty damned good. I will definitely be in the audience for any Brosnan gigs in York. In fact if any of my promoter friends are reading this please check them out. This is very much a message to you Simon Pattinson!
