Black Country, New Road – For The First Time
Black Country, New Road were of the radar for a while but are fully and convincingly back with ‘For The First Time’! As a debut the album exudes raucous energy, ferocious intensity and compelling experimentation, which simultaneously revels in considered quieter moments of reflection.
