Brosnan’s fusion of British indie and new wave informs their second-hand pop sound. With Jonny Rodrigues’ bubbly bass hooks, the onrush of raw vocals and melodic guitar riffs by lead singer/guitarist Rory Moses and drummer Jake Haylett’s slick, stomping grooves, they exude wistful overtones reminiscent of influences Pulp and New Order.

The band have released a new single ‘Octopus’, the new single asks how does it feel down there at the bottom of the ocean? Whether for you that means lockdown or life in general. A surreal rock trip likened to bands such as Blur and The Raconteurs. Octopus is out now on all digital platforms along with an accompanying video.

The single starts with a catchy guitar riff that really sets the tempo to this impressive track, this combined with Rory’s agile voice makes this easy listening track a joy to listen too from the very start. The track will make you stop whatever it is you are doing and listen to every word in this track, it has a sound which so magical and will instantly grab your attention.

The single is a little over 3 minuets of catchy, magical and unique sounds, they have managed to create a single with an indie sound with a 60’s twist mixed with the bands own unique sound which really makes this track stand out, I can not think of another band that sounds similar to this talented band which I see as a good thing, you need to stand out from other bands and Brosnan have done that with little difficulty.

The combination of the instrumentals along with the great vocals and catchy sound makes this single a great treat for the ears. The lyrics will make you think, the beauty of the lyrics is that they will make the listener think and in one way or another they will relate to some of the lyrics as well.

An easy listening track packed full of talent and for me is the perfect summer track and will defiantly be added to my playlist.
